About Us: Working Together for a #TortureFreeWorld


The #TortureFreeWorld website has been designed as a platform for uniting global stakeholders in the fight against torture. It is part of a joint initiative by the American University Washington College of Law's Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law's Anti-Torture Initiative and six coalition partners from around the world designed to mark Torture Awareness Month.


Our goal is to provide a supportive forum for organizations and individuals engaged in the fight against torture worldwide to share their vision of a #TortureFreeWorld and to encourage collaborative efforts designed to make this vision a reality.



Here you can watch videos and view other multimedia featuring survivors of torture, anti-torture advocates, human rights experts, practitioners, and professionals from around the world, discussing their work for a #TortureFreeWorld.
