Promoting abolition of the death penalty

The fight against the death penalty is gradually gaining ground. Our efforts are paying off. However, opposition remains strong. That is why we are now stepping up the fight and have produced new guidelines setting out what the Foreign Service can do to promote abolition of the death penalty.

    The purpose of the guidelines is to help us to systematise and strengthen the efforts of the Foreign Service to promote the abolition of the death penalty, both at the general political level and in individual cases. The guidelines are available in several languages to ensure that they reach a broad audience.
