Abstract

Shubhangi Agarwalla argues that the death penalty has bureaucratised death and in doing so, relieved individuals of a sense of their own moral responsibility within its delivery. Considering Derrida's seminal argument on mercy, Indian society must reconsider the pivotal role of mercy within justice, writes Agarwalla.
