Missing persons

The regulation and legal consequences in comparative perspective (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Increasing attention has been paid to the position of missing persons and the effects upon their left-behind families over the past two decades. At the European level it has resulted in the Council of Europe Recommendation on Principles concerning missing persons and the presumption of death CM/Rec (2009).

The central question of the research is:
Which policies and legal regulations with respect to left-behind families and missing persons exist in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and England & Wales and can these provide a solution for the problems signalled by left-behind families in the Netherlands? Are there other possible solutions?
