THIS IS HOW WE WORK
IN DENMARK AND INTERNATIONALLY
PREVENTION OF VIOLENCE AND TORTURE
We monitor prisons, jails, closed psychiatric hospital wards, and institutions for foreigners deprived of their liberty. We work to build capacities in relevant authorities like the police and the prison system.
Through our international programmes we work to advise other organisations and state authorities in a variety of countries in order to improve their skills in combating violence and torture.
RESEARCH AND KNOWLEDGE
We conduct research into the causes, consequences, and prevention of torture as well as efficient trauma rehabilitation. We publish our results in DIGNITY’s own publication series.
