Istanbul Protocol,Manual on the Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and Other Cruel,Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment : Professional Training Series. 8 Rev. 1 Hardback

Description

Although international human rights and humanitarian law consistently prohibit the use of torture under any circumstances, torture and ill-treatment are practised in more than half of the world's countries.

This manual outlines international guidelines for the effective investigation, documentation and reporting of alleged torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, based on research undertaken by experts in law, health and human rights representing organisations from 15 countries.

The guidelines are also applicable to other contexts, including human rights investigations and monitoring, political asylum evaluations, and needs assessments for the care of torture victims.
