Recent Briefing Papers

The Asian Law Centre has recently published a series of bilingual Briefing Papers in English and Vietnamese on death penalty issues in Asia.

These Briefing Papers came out of a conference in 2017 on comparative death penalty and clemency practice in Asia, hosted by Ho Chi Minh City Law University (HCMCLU), with assistance from the Asian Law Centre.

The English versions were edited by Professor Pip Nicholson, and the Vietnamese versions by Dr Do Hai Ha.

The ALC Briefing Paper Series was edited until 2017 by Professor Pip Nicholson, and is now edited by Professor Sarah Biddulph.  It aims to increase understanding of current legal issues arising in the legal systems of Asian countries.

Papers in the series can be downloaded without charge.
