About this event

In our next seminar, join us for a discussion of death penalty advocacy in the Middle East North Africa Region with Jeed Basyouni (Head of Death Penalty, Middle East North Africa, Reprieve) and Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei (Director of Advocacy, Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy).

Reprieve has a track record of impactful investigative work and casework with partners and fellows in this region and finds and develop cases and narratives which have the potential to change the landscape and benefit as many individuals or classes of individuals as possible.

The Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) campaigns for human rights and democratic reform in Bahrain, including abolition of the death penalty. BIRD investigates and publicises human rights abuses in the country, and works with victims to provide recourse to aid and justice.

Join us to explore learnings from anti-death penalty work in the MENA region that might be applied in the Asia Pacific region.

Conversation Series’ brings together brightest thinkers and sharpest minds—academics, practitioners, advocates—to weigh in on topical issues pertaining to the death penalty in the Asia Pacific region. This Series is delivered by Monash Faculty of Law and Capital Punishment Justice Project (CPJP)™.
