||UK Member of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT)
Location – Europe wide with meetings Paris & Strasbourg
Salary - €323 per day plus allowances
The CPT is an expert body set up under the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, a Council of Europe treaty. The CPT furthers the absolute prohibition of torture in the European Convention on Human Rights by visiting places of detention to assess how people deprived of their liberty are treated. These places include prisons, juvenile detention centres, police stations, immigration holding centres and psychiatric hospitals. Visits are carried out by delegations, usually of two or more CPT members, accompanied by members of the CPT Secretariat and, if necessary, by experts and interpreters. The member of the CPT elected in respect of a given State never participates in inspections of places of detention in that State. Under the Convention, CPT delegations have unlimited access to places of detention and the right to move inside such places without restriction. They interview persons deprived of their liberty in private and communicate freely with anyone who can provide information.
