North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture
Seeking accountability for our state's role in extraordinary rendition

In April 2010, a three-day Weaving a Net of Accountability conference in Durham, NC focused on achieving accountability for North Carolina's role in extraordinary rendition and the U.S.-led torture in the post-9/11 era. The conference was sponsored by North Carolina Stop Torture Now, the Duke Human Rights Center, the Immigration & Human Rights Policy Clinic at the University of North Carolina School of Law and the International Human Rights Law Society at Duke University Law School.

With guidance from locally and nationally recognized authorities on transitional justice and human rights, a proposed framework has been developed for a citizen-led commission of inquiry on North Carolina's role in extraordinary rendition and torture.

The background material explains extraordinary rendition and torture and the use of North Carolina facilities to enable the extradition of detainees to foreign sites for interrogation and torture. See the Commission's statement of intent and consider endorsing the work of the Commission.
