We reported last year upon the Special Rapporteur on Torture’s 2013 Thematic Report on torture in healthcare settings. A series of important – and difficult – essays responding to this report can be found here, in a volume produced by the Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law. It is particularly important, and challenging, as regards the interaction between the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and UN Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT) in the healthcare setting.
