“The principles and standards set out in this Manual are both preventative and corrective in orientation.  Monitoring can help prevent human rights violations at either an individual or systemic level, and it can highlight areas that need improvement to ensure the full respect of fundamental rights to dignity and humane treatment.  Access to detention facilities is a first step to preventing abuse.”
