This report prepared by Syrian Feminist Lobby sheds light on the consequences of enforced disappearance on women, children and affected communities, and highlights the obstacles faced by women and families of the disappeared during their search for their loved ones after nearly eleven years of conflict in Syria. It is based on the analysis of interviews conducted with family members of forcibly disappeared persons. Special emphasis was placed on women in the families of the forcibly disappeared, including those who were previously victims of arbitrary detention and enforced disappearance.
