Released ahead of CTI’s Caribbean regional workshop being hosted by Grenada this week, the blog highlights some of the positive measures the country has taken to implement UNCAT domestically, such as measures to combat sexual and domestic violence; professionalise the police service through community-policing initiatives; and strengthen the country’s juvenile justice programmes.

Speaking about the latest blog, Dr. Alice Edwards, Head of the CTI Secretariat said:

CTI’s profiles of States experiences are intended to inspire and encourage other States to take similar action in ratifying the Convention and improving their domestic practices so that incidents and risks of torture and ill-treatment are identified and responded to appropriately. The timely release of the Grenada blog shows what is possible in the Caribbean, and showcases the country’s commitment to the rule of law, stable government and justice.
