As the extensive experience of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia demonstrates, scientific expertise, especially relating to mass grave evidence, has been used successfully to prosecute the categories of crimes falling under its jurisdiction. This paper, firstly, examines the way mass grave evidence has been used at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia before, secondly, analysing how relevant mass grave victim identification and location of the missing is likely to be at the International Criminal Court.
