Europe and Central Asia: Stop enforced disappearances in Europe and Central Asia
International Day of the Disappeared, 30 August 2009, is the time to demand justice for victims of enforced disappearances. In this document Amnesty International is urging governments to ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance. Only three of the 47 member states of the Council of Europe have so far done so. The context and scale of enforced disappearances vary in European and Central Asian countries; this document includes illustrative examples.
