Measuring and Enhancing the Impact of the National Preventive Mechanism

In 2009, the Public Defender (Ombudsman) of Georgia became the National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) under the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT). In 2019, this institution marked the 10th anniversary of the designation of the Public Defender of Georgia as the NPM.

Considering the importance of the NPM and the extensive work of the Public Defender in this field, the Public Defender’s Office (PDO) celebrated the 10th anniversary by organizing a high-level international conference on “Measuring and Enhancing the Impact of National Preventive Mechanisms”, which took place in Tbilisi, Georgia on October 16-17, 2019.
