Early bird registration now open!


Registration is now open for the IRCT'S tenth Scientific Symposium. Whether you are working directly with torture survivors, carrying out research or planning policy, the Symposium is a unique opportunity for you to share your knowledge, learn and be inspired by colleagues around the world.

Up to 450 participants from across regions and professions are expected to attend this groundbreaking event, where they will explore the promise of delivering on the right to rehabilitation.

To get a 100 Euro DISCOUNT on registration, register by 26 June. A list of all fees is available here.

The Symposium will cover three themes central to the sector:

  1. What works for who, where and why? - Trends and development in research on rehabilitation methods,
  2. What are the challenges in implementing the Right to Rehabilitation? - Getting the needed political, financial, legal and public support
  3. What can we learn from others? - Sharing knowledge with other human rights and health sectors.

The Symposium is supported by a prominent, diverse and interdisciplinary Scientific Committee, which reviewed the more than 240 abstracts submitted. All abstract authors will be notified about the results of the review by Friday 10 June.
