The Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT), headquartered in Geneva, has been working for forty years to prevent abuse in prison, especially by strengthening the monitoring bodies in places of deprivation of liberty. It is publishing a monitoring guide for the protection of LGBTI persons in prison. The drafting of this guide was supervised by Jean-Sébastien Blanc. Prison Insider asked him three questions.

Our aim is to ensure that oversight bodies are well equipped so that they can identify these factors that aid and abet violence.
