Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Cologne, course: Human Rights, language: English, abstract: "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person."(The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 3).Nowadays, practices such as ritual sacrifice, slavery, physical torture and deathpenalty can no longer be tolerated (Dieter: 1). The Human Rights Declaration bespeaksthat human rights are universal and made for everyone. However, there are nations that donot respect that and still use death penalty as a form of punishment. According to theAmnesty International organization about 97 states all over the world have abolished deathpenalty, eight states do not use death penalty for ordinary crimes anymore but for specialcrimes like war crimes or offence against military justice. Furthermore, 35 states haveabolished death penalty in practice but not in their constitution and 58 states still use deathpenalty, including the USA (Amnesty International, "Hinrichtungen und Todesurteile2011").Death penalty is still a controversial topic, which intervenes in human rights,namely "the right to life, liberty and security of person" (The Universal Declaration ofHuman Rights, Article 3). Due to that, this term paper will deal with the question if deathpenalty can be justified and if people can sentence other people to death regarding articlethree of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights mentioned above and if human rightsare universal actually.Firstly, the history of the U.S. death penalty and its development will be stated.Secondly, potential advantages as well as disadvantages of death penalty will be pointedout and if necessary the disputable issues of it will be discussed. Regarding the results ofthis term paper a brief conclusion will follow, answering the question if death penalty canbe justified or not.
