HIGHLIGHTS

NEW PUBLICATION

Report outlines challenges to and opportunities for ratification of the Convention

CEDI and the Human Rights Law Centre of the University of Nottingham publish report on the ratification of the CPED Convention

 

'This publication is an important tool to understand the obstacles to ratification of the Convention and how to overcome those. It is a tribute to the mobilisation of families of the disappeared and the experience of grassroot organisations. In line with the Human Rights 75 Initiative, it will be of interest to all promoters of the Convention: States, civil society organisations, international organisations and experts' explains Professor Emmanuel Decaux, President of CEDI and former member and first Chair of CED.
