Investigator for the clarification of enforced disappearance of children during the civil war, San Salvador, El Salvador
Your new field of activity
The church-related non-governmental organisation Asociación Pro-Búsqueda de Niñas y Niños Desaparecidos (Pro-Búsqueda) based in San Salvador has been committed to investigating cases of missing children since 1994. It makes an important contribution to moral, legal and economic reparations for families whose children were forcibly given up for adoption in El Salvador or abroad during the war and/or remain missing to this day. In addition to the actual search and the facilitation of reunions, Pro-Búsqueda provides information at national and international level on how to come to terms with the crimes of the past. Among other things, Pro-Búsqueda works in the national “Comisión de trabajo pro memoria histórica de El Salvador”.
Based on the investigation results, Pro-Búsqueda seeks to inform and raise awareness among various actors through workshops. This aims to strengthen the importance of dealing with the past and remembrance work as a prerequisite for access to justice, truth and reparation, and to create collective spaces and protective mechanisms for the preservation and further development of remembrance work.
Your work will seek above all to enhance methods and techniques of investigative work, in order to further advance the investigation of cases of crimes against humanity.
