We run events frequently. These consist of ad hoc or standalone events, coinciding with significant developments in our work or key dates in the year such as Human Rights Day, as well as regular programmed events.

The Conversation Series is a regular series of events we run with Monash University and our joint initiative, Eleos Justice. This brings together our brightest thinkers and sharpest minds—academics, practitioners, advocates—to weigh in on topical issues pertaining to the death penalty in the Asia Pacific region. All seminars are offered online via zoom.
