Our Work

Our anti-torture work is diverse.

In the legal sphere, we document cases of illegal violence in interrogations, demonstrations, detention facilities and during arrests; we file complaints and appeals on behalf of victims; additionally, we submit petitions to the High Court of Justice on matters of principal to abolition and prevention of use of torture. 

In the public sphere, we promote and advocate for policies and legislation aimed to criminalize torture and enhance enforcement and accountability; we raise awareness among the Israeli public to the existence of torture practices in Israel through public events, professional training and media exposure. On the international level, we submit reports to UN human rights’ committees, calling for a full implementation of the UN Convention against Torture, to which Israel is a State Party.
