Rehabilitation of Child Victims of Torture
"No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment."
(Article 37, UN Convention on the Rights of the Child)
In a world of growing urbanization and internal conflicts, children are increasingly at risk of being tortured. Frequently allegations of torture of children are reaching human rights organizations. However, because of the widespread social and cultural acceptance of violence against children in many countries of the world, torture remains an ignored and hidden problem, while impunity allows this appalling practice to continue.
