Disappearance and state responses in Latin America: rapporteur documents and country schema 2017

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Enforced disappearance generates specific legacy issues and international responsibilities for perpetrating states. This project, supported by the Latin American Studies Association and by UU's Research Challenge Fund, explores how a range of Latin American states have confronted past disappearance with a range of state and nonstate legal, forensic, social, and political responses. Experiences on the ground in various states that are, or are considering, designing national mechanisms to improve the search for, identification of, and restitution of identity to, victims of enforced disappearance and./ or disappearance perpetrated by nonstate actors. A series of rapporteur documents present findings exchanged at a series of events held in Chile and Peru between January and April 2017 (in Spanish and, in summary form, in English), while country schema and a presentation represent empirical and analytical intermediate findings
