The International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) will hold a Scientific Symposium from 5 to 7 December in Mexico City. The IRCT has now extended the deadline for the early bird registration for the Scientific Symposium until 31 July.

The Symposium is the first global event to look in detail across disciplines at how to deliver on the promise of the right to rehabilitation for torture survivors. Up to 450 participants from across regions and professions are expected to attend the event.

The event is jointly hosted by the IRCT and Colectivo Contra la Tortura and is being held prior to the IRCT General Assembly, which runs from 8 to 9 December.
