** In [[international human rights law]], a '''forced disappearance''' (or '''enforced disappearance''') occurs when a person is secretly abducted or imprisoned by a [[State (polity)|state]] or [[political organization]], or by a third party with the authorization, support, or acquiescence of a state or political organization, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the person's fate and whereabouts, with the intent of placing the victim outside the protection of the law.<ref name="HenckaertsDoswald-Beck2005"></ref> <P> According to the [[Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court]], which came into force on 1 July 2002, when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed at any civilian population, a "forced disappearance" qualifies as a [[crime against humanity]] and, thus, is not subject to a [[statute of limitations]]. On 20 December 2006, the [[United Nations General Assembly]] adopted the [[International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance]]. <P> Often, forced disappearance implies murder. The victim in such a case is typically [[kidnapping|abducted]], illegally [[prison|detained]] and often tortured during interrogation, and ultimately killed, their body concealed after the fact by the individuals or organization responsible for their death. Typically, a murder will be surreptitious, with the corpse disposed of to escape discovery so that the person apparently vanishes. The party committing the murder has [[plausible deniability]], as nobody can provide evidence of the victim's death. <P> "Disappearing" political rivals is also a way for regimes to engender feelings of [[complicity]] in populations. The difficulty of publicly fighting a government that murders in secret can result in widespread pretense that everything is normal, as it did in the [[Dirty War]] in Argentina.
