Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances - Country visits


Country visits provide the WGEID with a firsthand account of the situation concerning enforced disappearances, including institutional and legislative factors that contribute to such practices.

Visits are undertaken only at the invitation of a Government. However, the WGEID may solicit an invitation, based on factors such as the number, credibility and gravity of the reports received, and the potential impact that the visit may have on the overall human rights situation.

During the visit, members of the WGEID meet with:

  • Government authorities,
  • NGOs,
  • representatives of the legal profession,
  • relatives of disappeared persons.

The conclusions and recommendations contained in the WGEID’s visit report are intended to assist Governments in identifying factors which may contribute to enforced disappearances, and provide practical solutions to implement international standards.
