Despite some negative developments, the use of the death penalty in 2012 overall confirmed the global trend towards abolition. This report analyzes some of the key developments in the application of the death penalty in 2012, presenting figures gathered by Amnesty International (AI) on the number of death sentences handed down and executions carried out during the year. AI opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception, regardless of the nature or circumstances of the crime; guilt, innocence or other characteristics of the individual; or the method used by the state to carry out the execution.
