Dignity in detention – posters
25-02-2013 Publication Ref. 4118
A set of six posters promoting respect for the dignity of people in detention.
The posters contain basic information about the rights, and the proper treatment, of people deprived of their liberty; they also hint at the scope of ICRC action in this regard. The ICRC endeavours to ensure that people in detention are treated humanely and respected, protected from torture and other forms of ill-treatment, in contact with their families, in good health, and with access to adequate shelter, hygiene and sanitary facilities, and to sufficient food and water. One poster concerns the specific needs of women in detention.
