Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the problems of establishing truth, achieving justice and affording reparation to the victims of the disappearance of children and to see how this category of victims has been treated by the Salvadoran authorities. The first question is what obligations, according to international and regional human rights law, El Salvador has to comply with when a human rights violation has occurred, such as the enforced disappearance of a child. Secondly, has El Salvador acted in breach of these obligations and what might be the consequences of a breach. Thirdly, why does El Salvador not comply with international law. Finally, what are the prospects that the victims of enforced disappearance of children will be afforded remedies and reparations and will overcome Salvadoran impunity for past human rights violations.
