The Committee developed 16 guiding principles based on its accumulated expertise. The guiding principles aim to consolidate good practices in searching for disappeared persons. They identify mechanisms and procedures for carrying out states’ obligation to search for disappeared persons. The principles also reaffirm the important role that victims and their relatives play in the search for disappeared persons.
