A panel discussion on family separation and disappearance

Each year, countless family members across the world are separated or disappear by conflict and natural disasters. From former Yugoslavia to Bougainville in the Pacific, the tragic effects of living with the uncertainty of a loved ones’ fate is the reality many face. New Zealand Red Cross, through its Restoring Family Links service, presents a panel discussion which focuses on the impacts of separation and disappearance on families, and the importance of international legal norms for safeguarding human rights amidst growing trends of armed conflicts and natural disasters.

Susie Ferguson (presenter/senior producer, Radio NZ) facilitates this forum with a panel comprising of academics, representatives from both New Zealand Red Cross and the International Committee for the Red Cross, as well as the refugee community.
