Prevention of Torture

Edited by


Torture is probably one of the most common forms of human rights violations everywhere. Those held in detention frequently experience torture in many different forms. But it can be prevented. Human rights and other social justice organisations have a critical role to play in preventing torture in places of detention. But to do so effectively, a clear understanding of what is torture and the mechanisms available to prevent it is necessary. This course is designed to provide the necessary skills – and experience – to prevent torture. This course was originally developed by Fahamu for the UN Office of the High Commission for Human Rights and the Association for the Prevention of Torture. It was designed to strengthen the capacity of national human rights institutions to reinforce national human rights protection systems and engage in the prevention of torture. It is also suitable for human rights and social justice organisations concerned with the prevention of torture.
