The Manual on the Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, commonly known as the Istanbul Protocol, is the first set of international guidelines for documenting torture and its consequences.
The Istanbul Protocol is intended to serve as a set of international guidelines for assessing alleged victims of torture and ill-treatment, investigating cases of alleged torture, and reporting such findings to the judiciary and any other investigative body.
Following on from the three-day foundation course held in St Gallen in autumn 2018, this course specifically instructs psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists in Switzerland how to conduct the psychological/psychiatric assessment of the Istanbul Protocol. It will be facilitated by experts from Switzerland and Sweden.
