Investigate overseas practices of monitoring places of detention, for both adults and children (including in jurisdictions with Indigenous peoples), in anticipation of the establishment of a culturally sensitive inspection program in the NT. In 2017 Australia ratified OPCAT and the NT Royal Commission report recommended independent inspection of places of detention. Compare practices across jurisdictions, to establish best practices to be implemented in the NT, including:

  • preparation for visits 
  • conducting visits (eg detainee/stakeholder engagement, gathering and triangulating evidence)
  • strategies employed in advocacy on and off site (eg different target audiences, content of advocacy)

Keywords: OPCAT; Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Ill-treatment, corruption, prevention, criminal justice, detention custody, detainee, prisoner, Northern Territory, police
