This submission is made to the United Nations Secretary-General on the question of the death penalty pursuant to resolution 36/17, adopted by the Human Rights Council in September 2017.

Harm Reduction International urges the Secretary-General to continue prioritising the death penalty, and reaffirms the call for a moratorium on the death penalty, as a step towards its definitive abolition worldwide.

This submission addresses key impacts of the resumption of the use of the death penalty on human rights, with a specific focus on drug offences.
