Gone but not forgotten: migrants, mothers and the missing

  • ICRC Humanitarium (map)

In honor of the International Day of the Disappeared, the ICRC is convening a conference at the Humanitarium on the importance of remembrance and the story behind its origins. Although the world is changing, our responsibility towards missing people and their families remains the same. How can we best help responsible authorities meet the needs of those who go missing and their families? And how do these needs change when the missing person is deceased? The conference is part of the ICRC's conference cycle on generating respect for the law.
