This chapter discusses an area of cooperation where no such agreement or negotiation has taken place. It engages one of the most profound human rights in the universal panoply: the prohibition on torture. The chapter examines aspects of European engagement in the programme–providing silence in the face of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) claims to the efficacy of the torture programme in generating important information to prevent terrorist attacks. It reveals that the CIA's arrangements with countries to host detention sites were highly unstable and the CIA through its use of torture. It also examines the mechanisms the EU and the US have used to address problems relating to divergence in shared values in respect of the treatment of people. The chapter focuses on the EU–US extradition agreement and the finding of a solution for the difference in appreciation of the nature of the death penalty between the parties.
