International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP)
1996-06-29 Lyon France
Established by United States President Bill Clinton, during Annual Summit Meeting of the G-7, currently F-XF2036 - Group of Eight (G-8), to address the issue of persons missing as a result of the different conflicts relevant to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro from 1991 to 1995. Following the conflict in Kosovo and the crisis in Macedonia, operations were expanded to address missing persons cases from these areas. As a consequence of ICMP's success in former Yugoslavia, and with the financial support of a growing number of donor governments, in 2003 ICMP's mandate and sphere of activity were extended by supporting governments to address the global issue of missing persons, including cases arising from natural disasters. Original title: International Commission on Missing Persons in the former Yugoslavia. Framework Agreement on ICMP, signed 15 Dec 2014, Brussels (Belgium), by Netherlands, UK, Sweden, Belgium and Luxembourg, represents an international Treaty constituting ICMP as a formal International Organization with its own structure of governance and international capacities. Other states are invited to accede to the Agreement. As of 2022, eight States – Afghanistan, Chile, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Serbia, Sweden, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom – are Parties to the ICMP Agreement, and Belgium and El Salvador are Signatory States.
Help governments guild rule-of-law institutions that successfully and impartially search for and identify missing persons; support efforts to develop legislation to enable families of the missing to assert their rights.
