Emperor Haile Selassie
We monitor implementation of the guidelines, recommendations and work of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture in Africa (CPTA), the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment by African State parties and the work of the UN’s Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (SPT). We also have expertise in all aspects of the prevention of torture. We fight torture and give torture victims the much needed rehabilitation.We support the AU, AU Member States, justice systems, National Preventive Mechanisms (NPMs), national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and civil society to take effective actions to prevent torture and other ill-treatment and punish perpetrators.
With survivors, we campaign for change in the UK and across the world. Together, we raise awareness and influence decision-makers about torture and its impact.
