Cooperation on extradition: Convention Against Torture Initiative’s latest tool developed by the ICJ

On 17 July 2019, the Convention Against Torture Initiative (CTI) released the 6th tool in their series of UNCAT implementation tools on “Cooperation on Extradition”. The ICJ developed the tool for the CTI.

This latest tool focuses on the extradition framework established in the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (UNCAT), which enables and facilitates cooperation among States parties on extraditing those suspected of or responsible for offences of torture.

The tool sets out in an understandable format the basic elements of UNCAT’s extradition framework, explaining how it operates in practice, with the aim of bringing those suspected or convicted of torture to justice, thus ending impunity for torture and other ill-treatment. It provides 32 international, regional and national examples of how the framework can operate in practice.
