The APT has a longstanding engagement in Madagascar since 2005. Thanks to fruitful partnerships with local actors, the work of APT contributed to the ratification of the UNCAT in December 2005 and to the drafting and adoption of a national anti-torture legislation in 2008. The APT is now focusing on the promotion of an effective implementation of the June 2008 Law by conducting education, advocacy and awareness raising actions.
