This study investigates the processes of the removal of the death penalty
within the Council of Europe and its Member States. An evaluation is conducted of
the relationship of sovereignty and the death penalty in this region, and the
significance of the Council's attempts to penetrate this relationship is analysed. The
foremost motivation of this study is to understand how solid the removal of the death
penalty is, and to reveal what can be learned from the legislative activity of the
Member States and the various Parliamentary Assembly and Committee of Ministers'
enactments, and the case-law of the European Commission of Human Rights and the
European Court of Human Rights. It is my hope that this study will help ensure that
the death penalty remains removed from this European region.
