General Comment on women affected by enforced disappearances
Children/Youth | Economic/Social/Cultural Rights | Relatives as Victims | Right to Know the Truth | Effective Remedy
The General Comment explains the realisation of the Declaration's provisions through gender lenses. It notes that the suffering of women affected by enforced disappearances is twofold - as relatives of men who have been disappeared, and as victims themselves. The latter implies various forms of gender-based violence. The Comment emphasises states' obligation to integrate a gender approach in all measures, including legislative, administrative, and judicial.
