The CINAT - Coalition of International NGOs Against Torture
In order to effectively tackle this persistent problem, the Coalition of International NGOs against Torture (CINAT) works to strengthen the global movement against torture and other forms of ill-treatment.
Created in 1999, it brings together NGOs, which work in different yet complementary ways: in preventing these forms of abuse; bringing the perpetrators to account; providing rehabilitation and obtaining justice and reparation for survivors.
A forum for joint action which builds on the diversity of members’ approaches to combating torture and aims to:
Jointly increase awareness of the wide-spread use of torture and its consequences;
Combine capacities and resources to undertake specific activities towards the eradication of torture;
Share information on all aspects of torture, including relevant international and national law as well as alleged perpetrators and victims’ issues, and develop common strategies.
By working as a coalition, CINAT ensures that the campaign against torture is backed by supporters of different organisations and reaches the widest possible audience.
