In Lebanon, several positive and encouraging developments in the field of human rights have taken place over the past two years, including the adoption of the law establishing a National Human Rights Institute, a National Preventive Mechanism to investigate the use of torture and ill-treatment, and more recently the long-awaited anti-torture law.In this work, the full operationalization of the National Human Rights Institute and the National Preventive Mechanism will be vital.One ongoing project is to support the Lebanese government in establishing a National Coordination Mechanism.Together, the National Coordination Mechanism, the National Human Rights Institute and the National Preventive Mechanism have the potential not only to improve the realization of human rights but also overall sustainable development for Lebanon.Another example of a successful cooperation between the European Union and Lebanon is the establishment of a Forensic and Psychological Examination Unit at the Tripoli Palace of Justice, the first unit of its type.
