Preventing torture: An operational guide for national human rights institutions

This Guide aims to support and strengthen the work of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) –
whether they are human rights commissions or ombudsman offices – in the prevention of torture,
especially NHRIs that are fully compliant with the Paris Principles.

While NHRIs that do not fully comply with the Paris Principles can still play an important role in the
prevention of torture, fully compliant NHRIs are more able to engage in this preventive work with
legitimacy, credibility and, therefore, with greater effectiveness.
