The chapter is a presentation of the newest international human rights treaty, which entered into force in 2010. It is a very innovative and modern instrument, with a precise definition of the victim of a crime of enforced disappearance, as an autonomous crime, and a broad codification of the ‘right to truth, to justice and to reparation’ enshrined in article 24 of the treaty. As the ILC is working on the draft of an international convention for the prevention of crimes against humanity, it is important to avoid watering down the key legal progress enshrined in the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.

Keywords:   autonomous crime, crime against humanity, victims, right to truth, right to justice, right to reparation
