This comprehensive collection of websites and references provides extensive support for students who may be researching and writing papers on the subject of torture. The website homepage provides the following background and information.
One element in the solution to the universal practice of torture while in custody will come through education. If this subject can be integrated into secondary school and college curricula, a long-term solution will have begun.

An enlightened society, broadly aware of the nature and scale of police torture, will not allow the practice to continue.
