In our journey to reduce the risks of torture and ill-treatment around the world, 2018 was an important year as highlighted in APT's online annual report.
It was also a year of internal changes with a new management team and a new chapter for our work in Latin America.
In 2018, our main achievements include:
- Developing standards on police questioning to reduce forced confession and assisting in the implementation of concrete safeguards during police custody;
- Accompanying National Preventive Mechanisms (NPMs) in 40 countries to be more effective in protecting persons deprived of liberty (see our country activities on the online map);
- Advancing the understanding of the added value of the preventive approach.
These were possible thanks to our strong partnerships at the national, regional and international levels.
Thank you for your support!
