I am reading varied cases that went before the UN Committee Against Torture, and some of them cite torture, some of them cite ill-treatment, and some of them cite cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment (sometimes that amounts to torture and sometimes does not). It is my understanding that all are prohibited and that such is non-derogable, but I can't find a dictionary definition or 'bright line' between each--is there a document or case that clearly states what kind of behavior amounts to torture vs. ill-treatment vs. cruel/degrading/inhuman treatment?
