Detail

This strategy sets out the UK’s policy on the death penalty, and offers guidance to FCO overseas missions on how they can take forward our objectives. A list of priority countries are set out in Appendix One and reviewed annually. We encourage posts in these countries to proactively drive forward the death penalty agenda, in order to make progress towards our ultimate goal of global abolition.
