Bringing up the Bodies: Effectively Investigating Mass Graves

5 February, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

Join our conversation with the UN’s special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Dr Agnes Callamard and the director-general of the International Commission on Missing Persons, Kathryne Bomberger on how mass graves can provide evidence for truth, justice and accountability.

Mass graves are sites of horrific violence and need effective protection and investigation. What standards for investigation are now needed? How should mass graves be handled to protect the interests of families and survivors? What new techniques are available to uncover the truth? What do states need to do to fulfil their responsibilities?

This event is a live podcast by the Asymmetrical Haircuts team in partnership with the Hague Humanity Hub and the City of the Hague as part of the Peace and Justice Reception 2021.
