Holes in the Safety Net: Federalism and Poverty
The World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) has provided a great service to academics, practitioners and the general public through the publication of this Handbook on the prohibition of torture and ill-treatment in the InterAmerican System, authored by Claudia Martin and Diego Rodríguez-Pinzón, two of the most authoritative experts on the Inter-American human rights system.
This Handbook presents in a well-structured and comprehensive manner practical and theoretical information about the Inter-American System generally and, in particular, as it relates to the prohibition of torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment. The Handbook fills a very important void since, in spite of the relevance of the topic for the protection of human rights, there are no publications for activists and academics alike that provide information and analysis on the Inter-American System’s contribution to eradicate torture.
