Joint NGO letter to COHOM on EU Guidelines on torture

09/06/2011 – The EU Guidelines on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment constitute a fundamentally important framework for a comprehensive response to torture and other ill-treatment in the EU’s foreign policy. The creation of country-specific human rights strategies provides an opportunity to systematically integrate efforts for the prevention and eradication of all forms of torture and other illtreatment world-wide. The joint NGO letter provides key recommendations in this regard.
