DIGNITY - Danish Institute Against Torture

DIGNITY is a Danish human rights institute which works with treatment, research, international development work and advocacy under one roof. We are represented in more than 20 countries where we cooperate with local partner organisations to fight torture and help torture victims and their families to a better life.

DIGNITY works to eradicate torture, abuse and organised violence[1] in Denmark as well as abroad. We do so because we know that torture destroys people, increases violence in society and creates a fundamental sense of insecurity and fear in the countries where torture is used.

DIGNITY was one of the first places in the world to offer treatment to torture victims. For more than 30 years we have been helping torture victims to a better life. On a global scale we work in politics, law and healthcare to make sure that all torture victims get the necessary treatment.

DIGNITY resides in Denmark, but our work for a world without torture is global. Torture takes place in more than 131 countries (Amnesty 2014), and therefore we are working in partnership with like-minded institutions and organizations both in Denmark and in several other countries.

DIGNITY is a self-governing institution independent of party politics. We are dependent on support from various donors, including the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is the largest donor. The operation of the rehabilitation center is funded through grants from theDanish Regions. DIGNITYs work is also supported bydonations from foundations and individuals.

[1] We use the term "organized violence" for the violence perpetrated by a state authority or at the request of a government.
