Let's have as many States as possible to ratify the Convention and let them recognize the competence of the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances to ensure implementation.
The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance has been adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 20 December 2006.
It entered into force on 23 December 2010. Shortly after the entry into force of the treaty, a new Committee Against Enforced Disappearances was established to ensure the treaty's implementation.
