This work explores the question of what constitutes cruel and unusual punishment on an international level. It reviews current practices in both Iran and the United States, focusing on the death penalty and the harshness of such practices as corporal punishment, long terms of imprisonment, and inflexible laws mandating punishment. Punishments are particularly examined in light of the universal declaration of human rights.
