Major multi-year research project on effectiveness of torture prevention commissioned by APT

The Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT) has commissioned Richard Carver, Senior Lecturer in Human Rights and Governance at CENDEP and one of the experts invited to participate in the December project workshop on NHRIs and Torture Prevention, to lead a three-year multi-country study to determine whether torture prevention works and what are the factors that reduce the risk of torture.

APT is a Geneva-based NGO that has had a major influence on the development of the international treaties against torture, as well as the development of national-level implementation of the treaty requirements. Management of the research process and publication of its findings are completely independent of the APT. The conclusions of the project will be published in an edited volume by an academic publisher, with research articles in peer-reviewed publications as the project progresses.
