Creation of a binding legal framework at international level

FIACAT believes that the creation of a binding legal framework at international level would contribute to combat torture.

FIACAT has been involved in drafting new international conventions to reinforce the existing legal framework.


For example, FIACAT has previously participated in working groups that led to the establishment of:

- The Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torturesetting up a system of preventive visits, entered into force on the 22th June 2006.

- The International Criminal Court, entered into force on the 1st July 2002.

- The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance
