The Istanbul Protocol: A Conversation

Leer en español

The Istanbul Protocol is a set of international United Nations standards for the effective investigation and documentation of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and for the reporting of these findings to the judiciary and other investigating bodies.

In these two videos, the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute and the Anti-Torture Initiative of the Washington College of Law present conversations with key global experts on how the Istanbul Protocol can be used effectively, some of the challenges that medical and legal professionals face in its implementation, and reflections on the future of the Istanbul Protocol.
