Delocalizzazione della tortura e ‘tortura di Stato’

Tra accordi di riammissione, esternalizzazione delle frontiere e chiusura dei porti

Alessandra Algostino    Università degli Studi di Torino, Italia    



The essay argues how to reject a person in Libya or close ports to migrants, as well as criminalize and obstruct the NGOs which are saving humans in the Mediterranean, violate the prohibition of torture and of inhuman or degrading treatments and constitute a crime against humanity. Responsibility lies with those who personally practice torture, but the European States’ governments or the EU executives are certainly not exempt from responsibility.
