Between 2011-2013, we engaged the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia (MNHRC) and the civil society network in Mongolia through national advocacy for ratification of the Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture.

We also testified before a Parliamentary Hearing on the benefits of ratification, that took place in 2015. While Mongolia is yet to designate a National Preventive Mechanism (NPM), we have continued to cooperate with MNHRC in other initiatives, including the EU-funded Torture Prevention Ambassador Project in 2014-2016, jointly undertaken with the Asia Pacific Forum (APF).
