Abstract

Atlas of Torture: Observing the Situation of Torture Worldwide is maintained by the Human Dignity and Public Security team of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights in Vienna and is supported by a team of researchers with extensive experience in the areas of torture prevention and the protection of the human rights of detainees.
