This regional workshop, being convened in partnership with the Convention against Torture Initiative (CTI), supported Caribbean States in overcoming some of the technical and capacity constraints that can prevent full engagement with the international human rights system. In particular, it provided an opportunity for countries in the Caribbean and beyond to share experiences and exchange in discussion on national practices.

The overall goal was to support cooperation and dialogue among countries of the Caribbean and beyond on torture prevention with a view to moving towards universal ratification and improved implementation of the UN Convention Against Torture.
