Reports and Briefing Papers

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.
