Regional meeting on national legislative and institutional anti-torture frameworks, Santiago
Regional seminar on national legislative and institutional anti-torture frameworks
5-6 April 2017
The Convention against Torture Initiative (CTI), in partnership with the APT, organises a regional seminar on national legislative and institutional anti-torture frameworks in Santiago, Chile, on 5-6 April 2017. The meeting is hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Justice of Chile.
This seminar will draw on the varied practices in Latin America and the Caribbean States around criminalising, investigating and prosecuting acts of torture and other inhuman treatment, as well as around consultation processes, redress and rehabilitation for victims of torture, gender perspectives, and other institutional arrangements to prevent torture. The event will also be an opportunity for non-States parties to the Convention to engage with States parties on implementation, as well as to discuss the inter-relationship with regional torture prevention instruments.
