Briony Jones and Mina Rauschenbach – about the search for victims of enforced disappearances
Lisa Ott, Briony Jones and Mina Rauschenbach are part of a 2018 SNIS Project called “The Search for Victims of Enforced Disappearances: A Multidisciplinary Analysis of Current Practices”.
This project examines how and within what legal frameworks do victims, civil society organisations (CSOs) victims’ associations, and official search mechanisms search for disappeared persons. They also investigate how these processes interact, if at all and how do victims and CSOs mobilize for the search as active agents, as providers of information and as receivers of information. They also look into the socio-political factors that hinder or facilitate this engagement. And finally, they think about how the engagement of and with the victims contribute to the efforts of official search mechanisms and the promotion of trust and restoration of social ties within the different spheres of society?
