Project Summary

In 2023, Peacemakers Trust began a series of publications and submissions to the United Nations (UN) concerning the international crime of enforced disappearances, which affect hundreds of thousands of people in at least 85 countries. Peacemakers Trust is advocating that all countries join the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance (ICPPED, or Convention on Enforced Disappearance):
