On 17 February 2017, the United Nations held a high-level meeting to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance. This meeting was intended as an opportunity to highlight the positive practices as a result of the Convention and identify the ways to improve in terms of protecting human rights and preventing enforced disappearances.

Professor Hugh Dugan of Seton Hall University was invited by the President of the General Assembly Peter Thomson to speak at this meeting. Listen to Professor Dugan’s remarks here.
