Side event nell'ambito del 6° Congresso Mondiale Contro la Pena di Morte (Oslo, 21, 22, 23 giugno 2016).

Organised by Hands off Cain, Amnesty International and Community of Sant’Egidio.

On 18 December 2014, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) reaffirmed its broad support for the Moratorium on Use of the Death Penalty resolution for the fifth time since 2007.

Resolution A/ RES/69/186 was passed with a record 117 votes in favour, 38 against, 34 abstentions and 4 absent.

In December 2016, a new resolution will be put to the vote and the abolitionist movement faces a major challenge to ensure that more
countries vote in favour.
