“We are seeing substantial progress towards the universal abolition of the death penalty,” Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson declared in his opening remarks at the high-level event, Moving Away from the Death Penalty: National Leadership, held on the margins of the annual UN General Assembly debate. The event also marked the release of a new publication produced by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, which places particular focus on the political leadership required to move away from capital punishment.
