How Others Have Done It: A Desk Study of Community Projects Related to Torture (Appendix C)

How Others Have Done It: A Desk Study of Community Projects Related to Torture (Appendix C)

With the aim of informing the development of the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation's (CSVR's) community work model to address torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, this desk study examines six community projects conducted globally. Details of four of the interventions were found in the literature and information about two projects was gathered in interviews with the staff involved. Each intervention is discussed in terms of six questions that have been found useful for thinking about community work (see Questions about community work, Appendix B). The objectives of CSVR's community work on torture – transformation, prevention and amelioration – provide the framework for considering the implications of each of these projects for CSVR's development of a model.
