ADP: A change in approach

Since the inception of the Asia Death Penalty blog in February 2006, I have written about major developments in the death penalty in Asia, drawing on media reports and work of regional and international human rights organisations.

Other stories have been based on my own commentary on the death penalty and tracking developments such as the rate of executions in Indonesia and Japan.

With recent changes in my (paid) work, I don’t have as much time to devote to writing for the blog. I am also devoting more time to another death penalty-related project.

Feedback from readers over the past three years has indicated the blog is playing a useful role pointing people to events and debates in the region, synthesising reports and preserving some of the stories that become lost to archives and the continual wave of new content online.

While I will not be able to devote as much time to writing original stories in the foreseeable future, I will continue to post major news stories and human rights reports. When time allows, I will post other original stories.

Thank you for reading, and please continue to send me tips and information that may be of interest for other readers of this blog.
