Description: This poster discusses research on torture. The authors suggest threat is the determining factor behind torture; torture is provisional. The authors argue that the more threatened a state feels, the more likely they are to participate in the act of torture. These assumptions will be tested through an empirical and quantitative analysis on the compliance of CAT member states over time.
