Helen Pittam, who graduated with a First in Chinese Studies in 2013, has published a joint article with Robert Weatherley. The article examines the debate amongst Chinese legal experts over the recent practise of death penalty criminal reconciliation. This is a process which seeks to reconcile an offender convicted of a capital offence with the victim by requiring the offender to meet with, apologise and pay economic compensation to the victim in exchange for a death sentence commuted to life in prison. The article has been published in the journal Asian Perspective.
