Torture through behavioural regulation


The behavioural regulation is used to torture a subject by forcing them to see their dignity and identity completely destroyed. Victims are submitted to a detailed set of regulations and rules, resulting in close supervision where everything (including completely insignificant details) is controlled. Violation of the rules (either real or supposed) is used as an excuse to punish the victim. They are subject to all kinds of humiliation.


Behavioural regulation as a form of torture has been reported in a number of countries.
