10th Anniversary of the OPCAT Celebration Event: 17 November


17 November 2016

Subcommitee on prevention of torture

Ten years ago, UN Member States paved a new way for international human rights treaties to function when the OPCAT entered into force on 22 June 2006. To mark the tenth anniversary, the SPT invited all stakeholders to a conference on 17 November 2016.

It brought together Member States of the United Nations, United Nations mechanisms and other intergovernmental bodies, non-governmental organizations, academics and others interested in the OPCAT and the prevention of torture and ill-treatment.
