The Death Penalty In China

Hualing Fu

Columbia University Press

This chapter examines the relationship between media, public opinion and death penalty judicial decisions in China. As argued, unlike the experiences of Western democracies, China’s penal populism as exhibited in death penalty cases often targets judicial decision-making in individual cases rather than legislative changes.

Keywords:   media and public opinion impact, penal populism, comparison to Western experience, influence over judicial decision-making, judicial responding, cash for clemency
