Intersectoral prevention


Sustainable solutions to problems related to human rights and security requires intersectorial approaches where local, regional and national stakeholders from different sectors (health, police, justice, urban planning, education) gather around common goals. DIGNITY facilitates such processes in collaboration with local NGOs promoting human rights.

Our intervention model is based on the idea that local partners themselves have to play a very active role. DIGNITY emphasizes that the partner´s competencies and capacity are built in such a way that the cooperation between them and other stakeholders is developed through a process of systematic documentation and informed knowledge creation. In particular we put emphasis on supporting organizations' knowledge-based advocacy and policy development.

TORTURE IS A DRAG ON HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY

Torture has been called ‘the mother of all human rights violations’. As long as a country practices or tolerates torture, people will be reluctant to speak, assemble and participate in the political life. Stopping torture is the first step towards improving human rights in general.
