Map of countries which ratified OPCAT

Torture and ill-treatment are universally and absolutely prohibited and to date 159 States have ratified the UN Convention against Torture (CAT), aimed at eradicating such practices. However there is a serious gap in implementing the CAT and torture and other forms of ill-treatment remain a worrisome problem today in the majority of the world.

The goal of the Academy is to promote academic education on democracy, human rights and the rule of law in the Western Balkan region as a specific focus. The Academy establishes a link connecting academia and practice, promoted through an interdisciplinary and interactive format. To keep abreast with political, legal and social changes and to underscore the Academy’s continuous relevance for future professionals, a reasonable part of each year’s programme focuses on specific themes.

The intense two-week programme includes lectures and workshops on different thematic fields such as concepts of democracy in a globalised world, the international and regional human rights instruments and standards (UN, CoE, OSCE, EU), the relevance of the rule of law, the efficiency of judicial systems, and also includes special human rights related topics.
