Visit the Enforced Disappearance Legal Database.
The Enforced Disappearance Legal Database, or EDLD, is the first and only resource of its kind for those seeking to litigate cases involving enforced disappearance.
The EDLD launched in August 2022, the result of a two-year research project completed with input from domestic and international legal experts. It now includes nearly 200 case summaries, drawn from the European and Inter-American Courts of Human Rights, UN treaty bodies, and a number of domestic courts. It is available in English, Spanish, French and Russian.
The updated EDLD provides international standards on enforced disappearances as set out in international humanitarian law and international criminal law, in addition to the previously-available information on international and regional human rights systems.
