Launch of the French version of Death Penalty Worldwide
Death Penalty Worldwide is excited to announce today’s launch of the French version of its website and research database. In keeping with its mandate to provide reliable and comprehensive information on the death penalty to a global audience, Death Penalty Worldwide is increasing it accessibility to lawyers, scholars and activists in francophone countries. Research on four French-speaking countries inaugurates the website’s French section: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Niger, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Thanks to the support of the French Embassy in the United States and the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, to whom DPW expresses its thanks, additional francophone country research on the death penalty will be added in the coming weeks.
