Chapter Summary

This index presents terms and concepts that occur in the book The Struggle against Enforced Disappearance and the 2007 United Nations Convention. The book discusses the purposes and variations related to the practice of enforced disappearance in order to explain the nature of the offence and its legal implications. In recent years there has been further variation in the phenomenon of enforced disappearance. In the context of the present global “War on Terror”, enforced disappearances that operated at the transnational level have become a means by which information relevant for security purposes can be extracted.

Keywords: 2007 United Nations Convention; enforced disappearance; War on Terror
