OHCHR Training Guide on Reporting under the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance

Published

24 March 2022

Focus

Enforced and involuntary disappearances

The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance is the first universally legally binding human rights instrument concerning enforced disappearance. It outlines States parties’ obligations vis-à-vis this phenomenon as well as the victims’ fundamental rights. Ten years after the adoption of the Convention, there is still work to do to eradicate and prevent enforced disappearances in all parts of the world.

OHCHR has developed a Training Guide on reporting under the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance. The guide consists of two parts: a Manual (Part I) and a Training Package (Part II), which complement each other. The Training Guide Part I and Part II can be used together to develop training courses on the Convention. They also serve as helpful resources for States, civil society organisations, National Human Rights Institutions and other stakeholders to better understand the Convention.
