As an extreme form of social relationship of submission, torture is still an ongoing and widespread practice; this is also due to several processes typical of the neo-liberal era, starting from the policies aimed at the security armoring of society. This volume investigates torture against immigrants, focusing on the situation in different countries and on aspects related to health, highlighting the link with the worsening conditions of migration and the war on migrants.
