From 10-13 August 2015, PRI and the University of Bristol in association with the Association for the Prevention of Torture will be running a Summer School for members and staff of National Preventive Mechanisms on ‘Preventing torture and ill-treatment of female detainees through gender-sensitive monitoring’.
The Summer School will take place in Bristol, UK (2 hours out of London).
The objective of the course is to increase participants’ capacity to address gender aspects in the prevention of torture and ill-treatment, but also to meet and network with experts in the field and representatives from other NPMs. The course will be based on the respective international standard, the UN Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial measures for Women Offenders (‘the Bangkok Rules’).
The course is sponsored by the Danish Government within the Convention against Torture Initiative.
