THE DEATH PENALTY & INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS

This broadcast segment of GLOBAL IMPACT addresses the social, economic, political, and racial dimensions of the death penalty. Over two thirds of the countries in the world have abolished the death penalty. Public support for the the death penalty is diminishing in the United States. We'll be discussing death penalty trends, the death penalty and innocence, cost of the death penalty, the death penalty and race, the death penalty and arbitrariness, the federal death penalty, the death penalty and deterrence, lethal injection, executions and medical ethics, the death penalty and mental illness, and the death penalty and foreign nationals.
