This chapter examines developments in death penalty law and practice in China. It reviews law and practice in light of China’s domestic political context. It is organised around four main themes concerning some of human rights-related issues in the UN Safeguards Guaranteeing Protection of the Rights of Those Facing the Death Penalty.
