The CSP Working Group on the Fight Against Torture presents its country reports 2022

The 2022 Prohibition of Torture Index was measured in nine countries in the OSCE region.

This is a unique tool for assessing the completeness of implementing the prohibition of torture, which was developed by the Working Group in 2020. The first pilot measurement of the Index was conducted in eight countries of the OSCE region using their 2019 data. The Index was then calculated for each country based on measurements reflecting the State's performance in areas such as torture response mechanism, judicial review, statutory prohibition of torture in domestic legislation, procedural guarantees designed to prevent the use of torture, torture prevention instruments in place, and whether the State has fully ratified and implemented the international standards on the prohibition of torture.
Also, the Working Group prepares reports assessing events in the countries studied.

See country profiles and current assessment of events: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Poland, Russia, Tajikistan and Ukraine.
