Episode 23: How the World Views the Death Penalty

Throughout the world, the death penalty is in decline. Since 1976, more than 75 countries have abolished the death penalty, and many others have severely curtailed its use or abolished it in practice, if not in law. While this trend is reflected in parts of the United States, the federal government and many states retain capital punishment. How does this affect our country’s standing in the international community, particularly as a moral authority on issues like human rights? Christopher Wright Durocher speaks with Kristina Roth and Elizabeth Zitrin to answer this and other questions about how the world views the death penalty.
