MENA e-bulletin "Digest"

Between spring 2012 and summer 2014, the APT published six issues of the MENA e-bulletin MENA – a torture free zone. The objective was to provide a space in which experts and activists could express their opinions, share their experience and receive updates on recent developments. The MENA e-bulletin was edited by APT Board member Mervat Rishmawi.

This “digest” section provides easy access to a selection of articles with longer-term relevance for APT’s work in the region. The articles reflect the views of the contributors and not necessarily those of the editor or the APT.
