The use of torture is a human rights violation that is completely prohibited by international law. Despite this, torture is still widespread, leaving devastating (and oftentimes permanent) damage on the victim.
This webinar is suitable for anyone who is seeking to improve justice and to say “No” to human rights violations. Bringing together three key speakers from the highest caliber – from Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt – this webinar will cover topics related to the prevention of torture, the promotion of safeguards through detention visits, the Istanbul Protocol as an instrument to prevent torture, and the physical/psychological aftermath of torture. The material in this symposium will form one module of an eventual credit-eligible, International Correctional Psychology Certificate.
The International Network for Justice Improvement Organizations (INJIO) is a network of individuals and agencies from over 20 countries who are seeking to improve justice, and is a project of the Global Justice Resource Center (GJRC).
The webinar is sponsored by the INJIO and supported by the GJRC in the U.S., Restart Center in Lebanon, and PRAWA in Nigeria.
