The Oslo University organized the 1st; International Symposium on Death Penalty in Asia in Oslo, Norway on March 17-20, 2010. Death Penalty is a serious human rights issue in the current debate on criminal justice. Few countries are left who have to abolish the death penalty. There is a dearth of literature, research studies, reports and data on death penalty in Pakistan. Fasihuddin (PSP) attended the Symposium and presented his paper on “Death Penalty in Pakistan”. Many world renowned scholars and experts on death penalty attended the meeting. Prof. David T. Johnson (USA), Prof. Borgo Bakkan (Hong Kong), Prof. Miyazawa (Japan), Prof. Roger Hood UK) and Dr. Lill Sherdan (Norway) presented their scholarly works on the relatively least-touched area of Death Penalty. Dr. Lill intends to write a book on the subject which will be a valuable addition to the available literature.
