The Uses of Truth: Truth Commissions Archives, Justice and the Search for the Disappeared in El Salvador

23 Apr 2018 | New York, USA

The Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights is hosting a panel event to draw attention to the role that truth commission archives play as a potential source of information for justice and the search for those forcibly disappeared in times of conflict or oppression. The panel will discuss historical decisions about access to truth commission archives in light of evolving standards on the right to truth, accountability, and justice. In addition, panelists will talk about the specific potential of El Salvador’s Truth Commission archives and how they can contribute to the search for the disappeared.
