Ensuring the Role of Victims and Families in Search Processes for the Missing and Disappeared in Syria: A Comparative Discussion

Ensuring the Role of Victims and Families in Search Processes for the Missing and Disappeared in Syria: A Comparative Discussion

The International Center for Transitional Justice is pleased to present a side event during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), in partnership with the governments of Finland and Luxembourg. This event aims to bring key stakeholders and ICTJ experts working on the missing and disappeared in Syria and Colombia together with representatives from the offices of the UN Secretary General (UNSG), OHCHR, UN member states, and civil society. The event seeks to elicit concrete recommendations about how to implement an effective victim-centered, trauma-informed institution on the missing and disappeared in Syria. The discussion is a timely one, as the creation of an independent humanitarian institution for Syria is likely to be taken up during this upcoming UNGA session, following release on August 30th of a UNSG report on the missing in Syria submitted pursuant to General Assembly resolution 76/228. ICTJ’s work on this issue is made possible with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
