Does torture prevention work?

Which measures – if any – are effective in reducing the risk of torture and other ill-treatment? This is the overall question of the forthcoming book “Does Torture Prevention Work?” The book is the result of a three-year research project, commissioned by the APT, and carried out independently under the lead of Dr Richard Carver, Oxford Brookes University, UK. In this interview, Dr Richard Carver and Dr Lisa Handley discuss the main findings and some of the methodological issues they faced in carrying out the research.
