ACT for the Disappeared (ACT) was founded in 2010 as a Lebanese human rights organization to provide answers to families of those missing and disappeared in the Lebanese civil war to their demands for the fate and whereabouts of their loved ones. The organization, based in Beirut, conducts field work in Beirut, Maten and in the north and south of the country. The aim of the organization is to initiate a sustainable, peace-building reconciliation process in Lebanon in order to give the victims recognition, enable collective healing and restore social cohesion. Lobbying and numerous initiatives have focused on gathering and preserving information on the fate and whereabouts of the missing and disappeared, including mapping and protecting clandestine burial sites, using oral history methods. In addition, ACT conducts research to make truth-finding processes more trauma-sensitive, thus contributing to a more comprehensive and sustainable reconciliation process.
