A methodological dilemma: The street corner approach versus an institutional approach to accessing victims of torture and CIDT, Appendix D

Langa, Malose. 2011. A methodological dilemma: The street corner approach versus an institutional approach to accessing victims of torture and CIDT, Appendix D. Johannesburg: Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.

CSVR developed two research projects to identify and profile survivors of current torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in the new South Africa. Two research methods were used to investigate patterns and effects of torture and victims' access to medical, legal and psychosocial services – the street corner approach and the institutional approach. This report compares and contrasts the strengths and limitations of the institutional and street corner approaches as methods for accessing people who have been tortured recently in South Africa. This reflective report helped to inform the development of CSVR's model for community interventions to address torture detailed in Finding our way: Developing a community work model for addressing torture
