Abstract

This project investigates the current use and severity of torture by countries who are active and participating members of the International Court of Justice and the European Court of Justice. I compare torture used by members of these courts before and after they became members to discover the importance of international mechanisms in deterring the use of torture. This research is relevant at the domestic level because if adjudication does not work, it will take domestic awareness and action to deter torture and advance human rights in the 21st century.
