We are working with Chinese lawyers and legal scholars to raise awareness of the Istanbul Protocol, the United Nation's international guidelines for the assessment of persons who allege torture and ill treatment, for investigating cases of alleged torture, and for reporting such findings to the judiciary and any other investigative body.

We are also supporting their efforts to advocate for improved policy and practice in relation to bringing evidence of torture before the court. With EU support, we are cooperating with Li Heping and other lawyers to support the provision of training to their peers on the Convention Against Torture and raise awareness of the role of lawyers in the struggle against torture. We also support their work seeking the overturn of unsafe convictions based on coerced confessions.
