Disappeared Migrants and Refugees
The Relevance of the International Convention on Enforced Disappearance in their search and protection
Enforced disappearance of migrants and refugees has become a pressing human rights problem and must be taken more seriously by States than at present.
This study analyses relevant obligations arising from the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance (ICPPED) with regard to disappeared migrants and refugees. It elaborates the Convention’s contribution to protect migrants and refugees from becoming victims of enforced disappearance and to support relatives in their search for disappeared migrants and refugees.
