Sandra Babcock, Watson Fellow 1986, leads fight against capital punishment in Malawi
Dr. Babcock, Founder and Faculty Director of the Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide, began working on Malawian capital cases in 2007. Since then, her work has supported the release of about 150 former death row prisoners — many mentally ill or minors. On April 28th, Malawi's Supreme Court abolished the death penalty.
