The chapter discusses the urgent humanitarian interventions of the two bodies within the UN system dedicated to the protection of human rights related to the issue of (en)forced disappearance: The Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID) and the Committee on Enforced Disappearance (CED). It explains the ‘urgent actions’ of both bodies in light of their respective origins and mandates and describes in detail the procedures, working methods and results of these ‘urgent actions’ that have become central to their work.
