Core States

The CTI is a unique, global initiative of the Governments of Chile, Denmark, Fiji, Ghana, Indonesia and Morocco – all States strategically located in different regions throughout the world.

The CTI principle is that of States helping States. It operates on the basis that no State has a perfect record when it comes to the implementation of the Convention against Torture. Instead, CTI offers support to States to ratify and implement the Convention as successfully as they can. 

The six CTI Core States spearheading the initiative are engaged through their direct bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, as well as through sharing and exchanging on their national practices and challenges with other governments and by hosting and participating in various activities.

Although there are many challenges and significant work to do, we cannot afford to be complacent, nor pessimistic. At this important moment, we encourage all UN Member States to join our Initiative and help us harness the momentum, support and successes so far achieved to accelerate countries’ efforts toward universal ratification and full implementation of this fundamental human rights treaty.
