    3. Unveiling the "Invisibility Cloak"
“This book aims to attribute responsibility to the Kingdom of Thailand for
failing to introduce legal mechanisms and safeguards to protect its citizens -
in breach of its State duties - from enforced disappearances. In an attempt to
remove pre-existing ambiguities on what basic human rights are being
violated and by whom, the author comparatively analyses international human
rights jurisprudence vis-a-vis certain Latin American and European countries.”
