First hours of detention in Brazil, Thailand and Madagascar: Independent evaluation

An independent evaluation of an APT’s three-year project to promote implementation of detention safeguards during the first hours of custody in Brazil, Madagascar and Thailand has highlighted four significant achievements. 

The project, which ran from January 2018 to February 2021, was found to be very effective, utilising complementary approaches of capacity building, mobilisation and awareness raising to promote sustained change in the three countries.
