The Committee on Enforced Disappearances, the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, and the International Coalition against Enforced Disappearances, with the support of the Geneva Human Rights Platform, are convening a webinar on sharing experiences and outcomes of actions taken to promote the ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of all Persons from Enforced Disappearances and the recognition of the full competence of the Committee.
This event will take stock of the actions carried out to promote the ratification of the Convention and share experiences and practices from the perspective of States representatives, civil society organizations, National Human Rights Institutions and UN experts.
The aim is to promote direct contact and information sharing between involved actors to further strengthen strategies and identify actions to be taken.
