Research collaboration

Policy guidance and submissions

Freedom from Torture is committed to supporting research and learning in the fields of torture rehabilitation, legal protection for torture survivors and accountability for torture. To this end, we welcome research proposals within these areas of interest.

Our multi-disciplinary Research and Ethics Committee will review all proposals for research involving Freedom from Torture staff, clients or client data, or other forms of research collaboration with the organisation, and the Committee must approve proposals before the research can proceed.

Please see our terms of reference and procedures for submitting research proposals.

Our priority is to support research that will further the strategic aims of the organisation and that is in the interests of torture survivors. We will therefore carefully consider proposals with this in mind. We will also consider the quality and appropriateness of the proposed research and methodology, as well as research ethics and resource implications for the organisation.

Please see our guidelines for evaluating research proposals.
