A report, compiled by the Open Society Justice Initiative, claims to have evidence that more than a quarter of the world's governments covertly offered support.
The New York-based human rights organisation, says at least 54 countries co-operated with the global kidnap, detention and torture operation that was mounted after 9/11, many of them in Europe.
The report dedicates a chapter to Ireland, saying it permitted the use of its airspace and airports for flights associated with CIA extraordinary rendition operations.
The OSJI says it is clear that the CIA could not have operated its rendition programme without the support of other countries.
