2010Inter-American Institute for Human Rights (IIHR) Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT)

The Optional Protocol to the UN Convention against Torture adopted in December 2002, provides a novel and realistic approach to preventing this unacceptable human rights violation and crime against humanity. For the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights (IIHR) and the Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT), it is therefore a great honour to jointly present this manual aimed at putting such an innovative and indispensable international instrument into practice.
