Folter und andere Formen der Misshandlung sind trotz des universellen Verbotes weiterhin weltweit grausame Realität. Folter ist kein isoliert auftretendes Phänomen, sondern wird oft systematisch im Namen der Sicherheit angewandt. Die Forschung hat gezeigt, dass Folter und unmenschliche Behandlung effektiv verhindert werden können. Unterstützen Sie uns dabei, den Atlas of Torture ins Leben zu rufen. Gemeinsam sind wir stärker als wir oft glauben.

The last weeks were intense and exciting: We have launched a crowdfunding campaign, a beta version of the Atlas of Torture and spread the word about the project to as many people as possible! We have received an amazing amount of messages ensuring support and cooperation. With your help, we have already reached 62% of our funding goal but still need 19.000€ to establish the Atlas of Torture. Based on the positive feedback, we are convinced that with your support we will be able to achieve 100% in the next two weeks. Therefore, we prolonged our campaign until 26 July 2018. So far, numerous eminent experts supported our project with testimonial videos (available at our blog here): Markus Jäger (Council of Europe) Mari Amos (UN Subcommittee on the Prevention of Torture) Pau Pérez-Sales (World Psychiatric Association) Matylda Pogorzelska & Jonas Grimheden (European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights) Rachel Murray (University of Bristol) Richard Carver (Oxford Brookes University) Josef Pröll (President of the Ludwig Boltzmann Society) Krassimir Kanev (Bulgarian Helsinki Committee) If you want to know more on this project, read the articles from the Austrian press coverage on the Atlas of Torture: Ö1 (Radio, not available anymore) Wiener Zeitung Standard Presse Profil Please support us, stay informed and spread the word!

This year we want to honour the International Day in Support of Torture Victims in a special way: with the launch of a beta-version version of our new website. www.atlas-of-torture.org The website – developed together with HURIDOCS - will host the most comprehensive database and a global cooperation platform on torture and ill-treatment. To continuously develop the database we encourage other organisations and researchers to send us their reports, training materials, guidelines etc, thereby contributing towards a comprehensive one-stop-shop for material related to torture and ill-treatment. Together with HURIDOCS we also developed some ideas on how to realise the Projects & Activities Map and the Learning & Exchange Platform we want to establish with your support. To make them a reality, we need you - every donation matters! Have a look at what we have developed so far www.atlas-of-torture.org and if you have not yet done it: join our campaign! A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported us so far – every donation is bringing us closer to our goal!
