The purpose of this project is to increase the knowledge and actual usage of the Istanbul Protocol, an UN-adopted manual for the investigation and documentation of cases of alleged torture and other forms of ill-treatment, in European countries.

Under the lead of Vienna Medical University a series of educational materials will be prepared to reach that purpose. Via a website and several dissemination events this material will further be provided and presented to a professional audience. Moreover the public will be informed about progression of the project by newsletters.
