My current report examines questions relating to accountability for torture and ill-treatment. In doing so, my report: (a) offers an overview of the most important legal and practical challenges conducive to what can be described as a “worldwide accountability gap” for torture and ill-treatment; (b) examines various functions and forms which accountability can take; and (c) makes recommendations on measures that can be taken to improve worldwide accountability for torture or ill-treatment.
