The purpose of this page is to raise torture awareness and the use of certain tools that are used for the advancement of torture. The main objective is to enable victims or other persons to lodge a report on behalf of victims.

This project aims to prevent future incidents of torture and ill-treatment, increase accountability for prior incidents and contribute to reparation for survivors through a distinctive focus on the use and trade of the tools of torture used to perpetrate such acts.

The project is funded by the EU’s European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) under its Prevention of Torture strand of work, and runs for three years, from April 2018 to March 2021.
