Abstract

The chapter shows how American exceptionalism has manifested itself in relation to the death penalty at the international level. It focuses on the key roles played by the United States: 1st, during the process of negotiation and adoption of various U.N. instruments that mention the death penalty, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; and 2d, more recently, with respect to the United States' position regarding numerous resolutions on capital punishment made by the U.N. Commission on Human Rights.
