This chapter analyses the United Nations Convention on enforced disappearances in relation with international humanitarian law. In particular, it addresses the provisions of the Convention on serious violations of IHL and on non-refoulement, and the without prejudice clause in article 43. Finally, it discusses the issue of detention by non-state armed groups and whether the Convention covers disappearances by armed groups.
