News from DIGNITY
“I was surprised by the challenging situation for journalists “
40 journalist students from the Danish Folk High School Vallekilde recently visited Jordan. They met with DIGNITY’s local office, partners in the national anti-torture and in the rehabilitation programmes, human rights actors and media institutions.
The invisibilized torture against women and girls
As one of the only organizations, DIGNITY put a spot on the widespread and systematic problem of violence against women and girls during last week's side-event at Women Deliver 2016.
Seminar: Can we prevent torture in war?
Preventing torture in war is the ultimate challenge for the anti-torture movement! Research suggests that torture is inevitable during wars, that torture complicates war-fare and is generally undesirable, and that we possess incomplete knowledge about how best to prevent torture during wars. What knowledge do we need to prevent torture? Can torture be prevented during wars?
