DIGNITY, Danish Institute against Torture
- (no state)
The Danish Institute against Torture (DIGNITY)’s goals are to prevent torture, to ease human suffering after torture, and to be a global driving force in the development of new knowledge about torture and its consequences. DIGNITY’s work is both national and international. On the national level, DIGNITY receives national funding to provide highly specialized and multi-disciplinary treatment to around 140 severely traumatised refugees yearly. On the international level, DIGNITY works under 3 themes: Prevention of Torture in Detention, Rehabilitation of Torture Survivors, and Prevention of Violence in Poor Urban areas. DIGNITY’s approach integrates human rights, health and development.
