Prisoner Voices from Death Row Indian Experiences

Prisoner Voices from Death Row Indian Experiences

The death penalty is embodied in Indian law, yet there is very little known about the people who are on death row except for media reports on them. In order to explore the way the prisoners on death row experience and perceive their lives and make meaning of that world 111 prisoners on death row in India were interviewed. Underpinned by phenomenology and symbolic interactionism, the data analysis, first and foremost leads to an understanding of the prisoners who are on death row with reference to their demographic profile and the impact of death sentence on the families of these prisoners.
