Exploring Attitudes Towards the Death Penalty in Zimbabwe

  • Briefing Notes
  • 10 Dec 2021

Between 2017–2019 The Death Penalty Project, our local partner, Veritas, commissioned leading academics from The University of Reading and The Death Penalty Research Unit, at the University of Oxford, to undertake research to provide the accurate and authoritative data on attitudes towards the death penalty in Zimbabwe. 

Interviews with 42 opinion leaders and a public opinion survey of a representative sample of 1,200 respondents, allowed us to understand the views of the overall population.

This briefing note summarises the key findings of the reports which you can also read in full here:
