World Congress Against the Death Penalty - Ensemble Contre la Peine de Mort

Oslo Opera House


It is with great pleasure that ECPM (Together Against the Death Penalty) invites you to register to the 6th World Congress Against the Death Penalty, taking place from the 21st till the 23rd of June at the Oslo Opera House under the sponsorship of Norway, France and Australia.

Every 3 years, this international event gathers thousands of members from civil society, political representatives, lawyers, and experts from across the world with the aim of developing new strategies towards universal abolition.


Following the 2015 regional Congress in Kuala Lumpur, this 6th World Congress will focus on the advances and setbacks of our cause on the Asian continent during a plenary session. A second plenary session will be devoted to the importance of national human rights institutions in the fight for abolition.


6 roundtables, 6 workshops, speed-dating amongst participants, various side events, and an entire cultural programme will be organised on the fringe of these great debates. For more information on the organisation and the programming, please visit our website at .


Please note that registration for the Congress is free of charge but compulsory.
