Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2005

In 2005 the Institute continued its campaign for a German signature and ratification of the Option Protocol to the UN Convention against Torture and Other Forms of Cruel, Inhumane and Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The Institute held a conference and conducted numerous talks, on the federal as well as the individual states level, in order to promote this prevention oriented human rights instrument. The Institute also participated in the discussion on German anti-discrimination legislation triggered by the public presentation of a draft law in December 2004. In the face of an emotional and partly polemical public debate, the Institute emphasized the daily reality of discrimination in Germany and pointed out that human rights obligations cover combating discrimination by private actors, too.

Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2004

In 2004 the institute placed great emphasis on a number of themes: By incessantly speaking out in favour of signing and ratifying the additional protocol to the United Nations Convention against Torture, the institute lends its support to the prevention of torture and the cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment of people. At the same time, it also bolsters an international mechanism of prevention that can only produce tangible results once a sufficient number of signatories have ratified it. The institute's statements on the question of headscarves worn by Muslim women served to make the domestic debate more objective by adding a human rights perspective. The second half of the year was largely dominated by events organized in connection with the Concluding Observations on Germany of four United Nations treaty bodies on human rights, as well as by events in connection with the Third Report on Germany of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance.
