ABSTRACT
In the last two decades the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment has been visiting mental hospitals, forensic psychiatric establishments and prison hospitals in all member states of the Council of Europe. Its delegations have paid particular attention to the questions of involuntary placement, compulsory treatment and means of restraint. The Committee has issued recommendations to the governments and developed standards. Success and insufficiencies of an international inspection system in a European setting with different legal provisions and clinical practices, few international standards and research but in a state of development are discussed.
