CTI Annual Forum 2018: What next in tackling torture and ill-treatment?

On 29 November, the Convention against Torture Initiative (CTI) will hold its 2018 Annual Forum in Geneva at the Graduate Institute.

CTI’s 2018 Annual Forum provides an opportunity for CTI’s Friends and other invited guests to hear about progress, provide input and advice on upcoming activities, and to discuss good experiences and challenges concerning the ratification and/or implementation of the Convention.

Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 2018 also marks the 40th anniversary of the UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture (established in 1978 as a Trust Fund for victims in Chile) as well as 30 years since the Committee against Torture reviewed its first State report. The CTI’s Annual Forum will provide a space to take stock of developments and opportunities.

The event is by invitation only.
