How CTI can help

There are a number of ways that the CTI can assist States. This includes States that are considering ratification and those that have already ratified but want help to implement the Convention more effectively.

The CTI is open to ideas on how we can assist States in ratifying and implementing UNCAT. Activities already include:

CTI Visits – We can arrange for State delegations to visit Geneva to hear from experts and likeminded States about the Convention and its importance to the international community. We can also provide for experts to visit States to provide assistance on a range of issues such as training police or government officials, CAT reporting, public awareness initiatives - and many other issues on request. 

Regional Meetings - The CTI is currently undertaking an ambitious programme of regional meetings. Major regional CTI meetings have already taken place in  MENA, ASEAN, OSCE, the Pacific and in Latin America and the Caribbean.  

High level UN events  – We organise regular high level events in the margins of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and the UN General Assembly in New York.  

Tools and Guides  – We are currently preparing a range of tools and guides that will be available online to assist and guide States during the process of ratification and implementation.

If you could benefit from any of the above activities, or wish to contribute ideas about other potential CTI activities, please contact the CTI Secretariat for more details.
