Webinar: The Impact of the Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance in Africa
This webinar provides an opportunity for victims and practitioners to discuss the scope and impact of enforced disappearances in Africa, with a particular focus on Algeria, Zimbabwe, Libya and Sudan.
We will explore who the victims of enforced disappearance are in these countries, in what context this crime occurs, and the main legal and policy gaps that prevent victims from obtaining justice and reparations.
As we commemorate the ICPED, we will take stock of its reach and impact in Africa in the last decade, and will discuss the way forward so that the Convention becomes an effective tool in the continent.
Moderated by Eva Nudd, REDRESS’s Legal Adviser.
