Abstract

The current definition of enforced disappearance in international law was created with Latin American dictatorships in mind. But today its statist bias leaves it unable to respond to the many cases carried out by hybrid regimes where both state and non-state actors are involved. This undermines efforts to provide an effective legal response both for victims themselves and for the friends and families left to live with the terrible uncertainties of this devastating crime, writes Angelica Blasi.
