Report, United against all forms of torture: Applying a cross- cutting perspective to prevent, prohibit and redress torture globally, 3 April 2017

This report aims to capture the discussions and outline the recommendations from the 2016 EU-NGO Human Rights Forum entitled ‘United against all forms of torture: Applying a cross- cutting perspective to prevent, prohibit and redress torture globally’, co-organised by HRDN and the EEAS. Human rights defenders (HRDs) and activists from over forty countries testified to the realities of torture and ill-treatment and reflected together about current policy approaches at national, regional and international levels and possible ways forward to effectively combat torture. The resulting recommendations are directed to the EU, its member states, third countries and civil society on policy and practice at home and abroad, in bilateral relations and finally with the ambition of greater international, multilateral efforts to stop torture worldwide.
