A Wheel That Continues to Roll

Guest: Bernard Duhaime, Chair-Rapporteur, United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances

Every year, thousands of individuals around the globe up and vanish without a trace — and it's Bernard Duhaime's job to help find them.

As head of one of the United Nations' most unique working groups, Duhaime has worked on more than 57,000 cases in which activists, journalists, opposition leaders and more fell victim to state-sponsored disappearances.

While the work leads to many dead ends and painful outcomes, the successes represent tireless efforts of local organizations and the ferocious strength of the families who never gave up searching for their loved ones.

On this episode, find out what it's like to be the one whose job it is to find ghosts.
