Overview of the Convention Against Torture
The Convention Against Torture, also known as the CAT, is an international human rights treaty that aims to prevent and prohibit the use of torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment. It was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1984 and came into force in 1987.
Why is the Convention Against Torture Important?
The CAT is particularly relevant in the field of immigration and visas, as it provides protection to individuals who fear being subjected to torture in their home countries. Under the CAT, countries that have ratified the treaty are obligated to ensure that individuals are not returned to a state where they face a real risk of being tortured.
