Summary

This conference, organised jointly by OSCE, the Council of Europe (CoE) and the United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate (CTED) in cooperation with the League of Arab States, will bring a broader perspective to examining the existing international legal frameworks governing the use of such techniques, to identify new developments in this area since the adoption of Recommendation Rec(2005)10, to exchange views on the challenges faced by states when applying such techniques and on best practices to overcome these challenges while fully respecting Human Rights and the rule of law.
