DPP publish reports that further momentum for capital punishment reform in Taiwan

The Death Penalty Project (DPP), in partnership with Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty (TAEDP) has published the third and fourth instalments in a series of studies of capital punishment in Taiwan.

Unsafe convictions in capital cases in Taiwan is a study of wrongful convictions, which highlights the risk of miscarriages of justice. Of the 62 cases reviewed, ten were found to be erroneous.

A study of public opinion in Taiwan, For or against abolition of the death penalty: Evidence from Taiwan, challenges the government’s point that the public support for the death penalty is strong by delving further in to statistics and measuring against their provenance.

The DPP is based at and supported by SM&B at our offices in London. For more information about our history with DPP, see here.
