What Drives People (and Governments) to Support the Death Penalty?

Experts are all in agreement – the death penalty is not a proven crime deterrent. So why then do many countries around the world, including Malaysia opt to preserve the death penalty? What is it that drives people (and governments) to support the death penalty? On the show to help us unpack is Dr Mai Sato, Associate Professor at Monash Law School. She’s also the director of Eleos Justice, which conducts evidence-based research, teaching, and advocacy on the death penalty in Asia. Also on the show with us is Tham Jia Vern, researcher from The Centre.
