Conference on enforced disappearance:
how to prevent and to combat impunity for this crime
On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the San Francisco Charter, which proclaimed the inalienable rights of every human being, race, color, sex, language, religion, political opinion or any other opinion, of national or social origin, fortune, birth or any other situation.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes the equal dignity and worth of all human beings as an inalienable and sacred right, the violation of which must be condemned and prosecuted.
The extreme seriousness of enforced disappearance, which constitutes a crime and, in certain circumstances defined in international law, a crime against humanity,
Europe is actually facing serious challenges internally and concerning its major geopolitical interests. Human rights situation in the Middle East and the impact of human rights defense policy on the European interests need an analytical approach of medium and long-term.
Despite the success of human rights, the fight for their continued validity, because it is regrettable that their violation remains in the world.
The panel will discuss:
-The enforced disappearance: how to prevent and to combat impunity for this crime
-The Importance of European Role in Promoting Human Rights
-The impact of human rights supporting policy on major challenges faced by European directions and states.
