Each year, tens of thousands of people go missing, some of them as victims of enforced disappearance. Clarifying the fate and whereabouts of missing persons is an undertaking pursued by a variety of actors ranging from State authorities, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, to family and other civil society associations. Effective search procedures are crucial to find persons alive, locate and clarify the fate of those who have died, and prevent others from going missing. In order to explore how the search is conducted in practice and discuss the related subtopics and dilemmas with representatives of all the sectors involved in search processes, the International Committee of the Red Cross and swisspeace jointly organized the International Expert Meeting in Amman from 3 to 4 September 2019. This report explains the background and objectives of the meeting, summarizes the main discussions and provides an overview of the key findings and potential follow-up measures.
