This study provides expert financial and operational analysis and information to help facilitate the establishment of an Independent National Commission for the Missing and Forcibly Disappeared in Lebanon, as envisaged in a draft consolidated bill now before the Lebanese Parliament. The future commission would work as the primary institution responsible for coordinating an effective and meaningful response to the right of families to know the truth about their missing relatives. The study is firmly based on the Lebanese context.
