Abstract: This research project examines the challenges confronted by a developing country such as Uganda in continuing with legal provisions that gives death penalty a chance to exist. Despite facing acute and intractable problems of poverty, Uganda has moved a step to adopt some of the provisions of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966, the Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989, United Nations General Assembly and African Charter on Human Rights and People's Rights of 1981. These International instruments are lacking a clear position on the death penalty. Chapter One involves the introduction of the study, objectives, purpose, problem statement, and significant of the study, related literature and methodology. Chapter Two includes international laws on death penalty for example the 1998 Rome Statute, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948 and others. The researcher goes on to give a critical analysis on those instruments; following it up with Regional Instruments such as the African Charter on Human and People, Rights 1981. The chapter finally ends with a discussion of the domestic legislations on the death penalty. Chapter Three includes the Research findings obtained from respondents in the field study and interpretation of data obtained from the field. Chapter Four is the conclusion of the study and wraps up all the main findings relating them to the hypothesis. Recommendations of the researcher over the study are also included in the last chapter.
