On 17 May 2021, the German Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, in co-operation with Amnesty International, the Omega Research Foundation and the Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) held a high-level online Webinar on the implementation of the Recommendation CM/Rec(2021)2 to member States on measures against the trade in goods used for the death penalty, torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, adopted by the Committee of Ministers earlier this year.
The Webinar sought to raise awareness on the serious problems tackled by the Recommendation as well as the measures identified by the Committee of Ministers against this kind of trade. The aim was to help the national authorities and civil society to implement this text at domestic level.
The Webinar also examined the ongoing efforts at national and international level concerning these issues, the challenges ahead and the existing good practices.
