Abstract:

Mass graves in countries such as Libya and Iraq regularly make news headlines and states are required to investigate any such crime scenes to facilitate justice for the victims and survivors. Several international criminal investigations into mass graves have been conducted, most notably by the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. However countries continue to grapple with the legacy mass graves have for society and justice. Capacity building for mass grave investigations started through the work of Clyde Snow in Latin America, and in the UK MSc programmes and training efforts developed over the past decades. At a time where the UK’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the relevance of impact is of critical importance to the Higher Education sector, it seems apt to reflect on the key challenges associated with tracing the impact such training and capacity efforts have had on practitioners, professional practice, public policy and legislative developments. Furthermore the question at this point has to be, what lessons can be learned for the future to ensure impact assessments are embedded into research and dissemination efforts.
