In May 2011, IPRT and the Irish Council for Civil Liberties submitted the Joint Shadow Report to the First Periodic Review of Ireland under the United Nations Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. IPRT thanks the ICCL for permission to re-use the design in the present submission.
