Conference: Forensic Investigations to locate and identify the missing

Dates: 5 March 2014


There can be a tendency to be overoptimistic about the effectiveness of technologies that could help in detecting mass graves. In practice, rarely does any project have access to all those that are available for a range of constraints, while in some cases the efficacy and reliability of such technologies have never been convincingly demonstrated. This presentation will consider critically the strengths and weaknesses of a range of technologies that are used, have been used, or have been suggested for use in detecting mass graves of all types so that more informed choices can be made.
