Abstract

Capital punishment, a government-sanctioned practice has had its share of support as well as that of dismay through the course of history in different parts of the world. The public opinion on the idea of capital punishment varies considerably by country and by the crime in question, which is why its prohibition and approval has been skewed throughout nations.

Through this paper, we primarily delve into the expedience of capital countries in third-world countries. We discuss about the causes that led or are likely to lead to either the disapproval or unanimity towards capital punishment. Similarly, we use pre-available statistics to predict the severity of this issue and hence provide new-found conclusion on the extent of its feasibility.
