General Comment on children and enforced disappearances
Right to Know the Truth | Effective Remedy | Children/Youth | Refugees and Migrants | Economic/Social/Cultural Rights | Relatives as Victims
The General Comment elaborates on the obligations of Member States in cases of child victims of enforced disappearance. There are three situations in which a child becomes a victim of enforced disappearance: children who are themselves victims of enforced disappearance, children who were born during the captivity of a mother subjected to enforced disappearance, and children whose parent(s), legal guardian or relative were subjected to enforced disappearance. The enforced disappearance of children implies particular vulnerability and thus represents an extreme form of violence against children which violate multiple rights concomitantly.
