Our Network

There are currently around 30 ACATs throughout the world - 28 are affiliated ACATs and 1 is considered a "supported group".

The whole ACAT network meets at least once every four years, during the FIACAT International Council.

What is ACAT ?

Ever since it was founded, in 1974, ACAT (Action by Christians for the Abolition of Torture) has campaigned on behalf of people who are tortured, detained in inhuman conditions, sentenced to death or "disappeared", whatever their origins, political opinions or religious beliefs.

ACAT seeks to increase awareness in the Churches and amongst Christians of the existence of torture and the need, for reasons of Christian faith, to work towards its abolition.

ACATs seek to promote prevention and vigilance with regards to abuses committed by law enforcement officials in their own countries, as well as human rights education programmes.

The action as a network

FIACAT facilitates networking on the African and European continents.

These networks allow ACATs to be better represented at international (United Nations ) and regional bodies (African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights , Council of Europe and the European union ), and enable a more in -depth look at issues specific to one continent (impunity in Africa, right of asylum in Europe) as well as possible actions at the regional level; in exceptional circumstances, all ACATS concerned may approach their respective governments.
