Guest lecture- Centre for Governance and Policy

Centre for Governance and Policy holds its first Policy Dialogue at ITU, Lahore, on the current debate concerning the role and implications of death penalty in Pakistan. Pakistan has executed approximately 180 prisoners since the moratorium has been lifted in December 2014 in the wake of Peshawar attack. Opponents of the policy argue it is a disproportionate measure and does not deter crime, whereas proponents claim it is the need of the hour.
