New opinion study shows Zimbabwean public ready to accept death penalty abolition

Today, The Death Penalty Project, in partnership with Zimbabwean NGO Veritas, launches “12 Years Without an Execution: Is Zimbabwe Ready for Abolition?”  a national public opinion survey on attitudes towards the death penalty in Zimbabwe. The research reveals that Zimbabweans are, in general, poorly informed about the death penalty and indicates that support for capital punishment may be lower than expected.

The Death Penalty Project, based at and supported by SM&B, commissioned and published this research.
