It has been widely reported that the United States is holding detainees in secret locations. Less is known about who these individuals are. In this Briefing Paper, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice presents the stories of 28 individuals who may have been “disappeared” by the U.S. government. Their stories are drawn from media accounts, human rights reports, and in some cases, interviews with legal representatives. While the level of certainty about the status of these individuals varies, the facts in each case are sufficient to indicate that each may have been a victim of an enforced disappearance by the United States. The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice calls on the United States government to clarify the fate of these individuals by disclosing, at minimum, their detention status, and for those who have been detained, their location and basis for detention.

The report analyzes these delays and their impact within an international human rights framework, and offers specific policy recommendations to help end discrimination in access to citizenship and other human rights violations.

Drawing on the U.K.’s record on the Prevent strategy, the briefing paper on Women and Violent Extremism: The U.S. and U.K. Experiences uses a gender and human rights lens to analyze the U.S.’ new policy of using a community-based approach to build resilience against violent extremism. The briefing paper finds that by largely adopting a now-rejected version of Prevent, the U.S. plan risks co-opting non-security sectors, such as education and health, to the detriment of immigrant women.
