MISSING PERSONS RESOURCE CENTER
CONFERENCE ON THE OCCASION OF MARKING THE 30TH OF AUGUST, THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE VICTIMS OF ENFORCED DISAPPEARANCES
The conflict in Kosovo in the late 1990s led to tens of thousands of casualties and hundreds of thousands of civilians being displaced from their homes. However, to this day, victims’ rights have not been addressed in a satisfactory manner. To date, 1,653 persons out of the 6,024 persons reported missing between 1998 and 2000, still remain unaccounted for.
On 27 August 2019, the NGO “Missing Persons Resource Center” MPRC with the support of its partners, is organizing the Annual Conference on the occasion of marking the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, with an aim to raise the public awareness in support to the process of enlightening the fate of missing persons.
The conference findings and conclusions will be disseminated to all relevant parties and wider public with an aim of identifying opportunities for future joint action and collaboration in enlightening the fate of the missing persons.
The conference is fully funded and supported by the MPRC key strategic partners: the British Embassy in Kosovo through UNDP Kosovo and the U.S. Embassy in Kosovo through KUSA Kosovo.
