The Element of Severe Pain in the Definition of Torture


This publication presents guidelines developed by RWI in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia, for interpreting and applying the terms “severe physical pain or mental suffering” in compliance with international standards. 

The guidelines, which were developed under RWI’s human rights capacity development programme in Armenia, are intended to be adopted and used within training on the understanding and prosecution of torture for law enforcement officials.
