Enforced Disappearances

Shirazi Foundation’s Human Rights advisor attends event held in Geneva’s United Nation titled: Enforced Disappearances, organized by Nonviolence International in order to further understand this important and crucial topic. Enforced disappearance occurs when a person is secretly abducted or imprisoned by a state or political organization or by a third party with the authorization, support, or acquiescence of a state or political organization, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the person’s fate and whereabouts, with the intent of placing the victim outside the protection of the law.

Shirazi Foundation actively seeks further information and searches for tools to reduce this globally recognized human rights violation.
