The World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, composed of more than 150 NGOs, bar associations, community groups and unions, was created in Rome on 13 May 2002. It followed the commitment made by the signatories of the Final Declaration of the 1st World Congress Against the Death Penalty organised by the French organisation ECPM in June 2001 in Strasbourg. The World Coalition aims to strengthen the international dimension of the struggle against the death penalty. Its eventual goal is to obtain universal abolition of the death penalty. To achieve this, it supports the work of its member organisations and coordinates international advocacy in support of abolition. The Coalition has also made 10 October the World Day Against the Death Penalty. It is a partner at the World Congress Against the Death Penalty which is held every three years.
