Delivering on the promise of the right to rehabilitation

The IRCT's 10th scientific symposium entitled, "Delivering on the promise of the right to rehabilitation" will take place in Mexico in March 2016.

The Symposium will discuss questions such as, what are the challenges in the implementation of the right to rehabilitation for survivors of torture, what are the developments and trends in research and evidence of what rehabilitation approaches work and how can we learn from each other and especially how can we learn from survivors? It will take place from 14 to 16 March 2016 in Mexico City as part of the movement’s General Assembly.

The Symposium is supported by a prominent, global Scientific Committee made up of experts from the torture prevention and rehabilitation sectors but also from public and mental health disciplines. The Call for Abstracts for the Symposium is now open and will close on 1 October 2015.
