NTS Centre Panel Webinar on Humanitarian Futures in the Post-COVID-19 World

Thu, 28 May 2020 02:49:46 +0000

Organization: Nanyang Technological Univ.
Start date: 3 Jun 2020
End date: 3 Jun 2020
Registration deadline: 2 Jun 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic shows that the threat of a public health emergency at such a global scale is real and imminent and its ramifications go beyond direct responses to the pandemic. The humanitarian community is affected both directly and indirectly. Challenges facing humanitarian action are compounded by simultaneous emergencies, unique features of infectious diseases, disrupted supplies of humanitarian items, and cuts to humanitarian funding to name some of the most salient. The outbreak highlights the need for the humanitarian sector to reconsider its future planning to be better prepared for a much more complex and uncertain future.

The outbreak has given rise to different demands from conventional humanitarian needs. The communities displaced by disasters are more vulnerable as healthcare for them is minimal and not designed for dealing with infectious diseases at such a scale. The strong transmissibility of the disease further increases the vulnerability of these groups as their living conditions make it difficult to implement the necessary prevention measures. The ability of the humanitarian community to respond is compromised. Humanitarian actors face such challenges as protection for humanitarian workers, shortage in available humanitarian workers and competing humanitarian needs.

Complex situations with a public health emergency occur alongside pre-existing humanitarian problems and pose challenges to the existing response system in terms of leadership and coordination. Given the probability that the pandemic may last for an extended period and with the risk of concurrent outbreaks of other infectious diseases, it is timely and imperative to discuss the mindset, expertise, capacity and institutions that will inform the humanitarian community in the years ahead.

This webinar will bring together a panel of speakers with different backgrounds related to humanitarian affairs to discuss how the current COVID-19 experience impact the future planning of the humanitarian sector. It will examine how the mindset about future planning needs to change and what humanitarian needs will there be in the field. It will also discuss the expectations on/of countries and regions, as recipients or donors, in humanitarian action. This webinar seeks to bring together practitioners and scholars of humanitarian affairs, disaster risk reduction, disaster management and human security.

Formation en ligne "Prisons : prévenir la torture et les mauvais traitements" - 2020

Mon, 25 May 2020 02:10:16 +0000

Organization: Synergies Coopération
Cette formation est réalisée en partenariat avec la FIACAT et a été homologuée par le Conseil National des Barreaux (France)Sur la formation « Prisons »

Cette formation aborde les notions essentielles et les grands principes internationaux relatifs à la lutte contre la torture et les mauvais traitements dans les lieux de détention, y compris les conditions carcérales.

Les objectifs de la formation

L’objectif de la formation est d’équiper les participant.e.s, non juristes ou juristes, avec les notions essentielles relatives à la lutte contre la torture et les mauvais traitements dans les lieux de détention. La formation abordera les définitions de la torture et des mauvais traitements en détention (module 1) et s’intéressera aux conditions de la privation de liberté ainsi qu’aux garanties judiciaires (module 2). Elle fournira des pistes concrètes pour permettre d’améliorer, à bas co슩t, les conditions de détention en prison (module 3). Elle s’intéressera également à la situation des femmes et des enfants dans les lieux de détention (module 4). La formation présentera les voies de recours au niveau international et régional (module 5). La formation se conclura par une présentation de quelques bonnes pratiques d'intervention en prison (module 6).

Les modules de la formation

Module 1 : L’interdit de la torture

Ce module vise à comprendre ce qu’est un acte de torture et un traitement cruel, inhumain et dégradant. Il aborde les différents éléments de la lutte contre la torture : la prévention, la poursuite des auteurs de violations et la réhabilitation des victimes.

Module 2 : Les garanties judiciaires entourant la détention

Les règles du droit international prévoient que tout individu a droit à la liberté et que la détention doit toujours être une mesure exceptionnelle de dernier recours. Les personnes ne peuvent donc être privées de leur liberté que pour des motifs et selon des procédures fixés par la loi pour ne pas être l’objet d’arrestation et de détention arbitraire ou illégale. Le respect de ces procédures par les États est également un moyen de prévenir les mauvais traitements et la torture dans les lieux privatifs de liberté.

Module 3 : Les conditions de détention

Ce module aborde quelques difficultés liées aux conditions de détention dans un lieu de privation de liberté. Il décrit, sans chercher l’exhaustivité, quelques problèmes fréquents et leurs solutions quand elles existent. Ce module ne prétend pas apporter de solutions toutes faites, ce qui serait impossible. La palette de raisons menant à des situations confinant aux mauvais traitements dans les prisons est large, et les solutions apportées ne peuvent être que contextuelles.

Module 4 : Femmes et enfants en détention

Au cours de ce module, nous aborderons les difficultés auxquelles font face les femmes et les enfants dans les lieux de détention et nous explorerons les règles spécifiques qui leur sont applicables.

Module 5 : Les voies de recours au niveau international et régional

Face à une violation des droits humains et de l’interdit de la torture en particulier, la victime a la possibilité d’exercer un recours devant certaines organisations internationales et régionales. Ce module vise à présenter ces différents mécanismes, les conditions pour les saisir et leurs pouvoirs.

Module 6 : Quelques bonnes pratiques

De manière très concrète, ce module visera à explorer ce qu’il faut ou ne faut pas faire lorsque l'on visite un lieu de détention ou que l’on y mène des activités. Seront notamment abordées les questions de la participation des agents pénitentiaires et des personnes détenues, l’accès aux ressources, et les difficultés liées à la protection des personnes détenues.

Public cible

Personnel pénitentiaire, personnel d’ONG, de l’ONU et d’autres organisations internationales et intergouvernementales, représentants d’institutions nationales des droits de l’Homme, des autorités nationales et locales, avocats, juristes, consultants.
