University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania is hosting an event to promote Island of Ideas on “How can we protect ourselves, our family, and loved ones in places of detention and social care?”

The Optional Protocol on the Convention against Torture (and other Cruel, Inhumane or Degrading Treatment or Punishment) (OPCAT) may be a once-in-a-generation opportunity to protect citizens’ rights in places of detention and in social care. OPCAT provides for National Preventive Mechanisms to stop problems before they reach crisis point.
