The EU and Swiss co-funded Libya’s Migration Technical Assistance Facility (LIBMITAF) project organised a training for Libyan representatives on the topic of “Forensics and Identifying Deceased Persons”, including missing migrants and internally displaced persons.


The training course equipped the participants with practical skills to identify deceased individuals through the theoretical and practical analyses of challenging case studies, such as the aftermath of explosions, shipwrecks, or natural disasters.


The participants from diverse backgrounds (forensic medicine, odontology, archaeology, genetics) learned how forensic techniques allow for victim identification in humanitarian contexts and how this contributes to upholding the human rights of the deceased and family members. The training was complemented by a visit of the University Museum of Anthropological, Medical and Forensic Sciences for Human Rights (MUSA), whose mission is to disseminate the role of medical, anthropological, and forensic sciences in protecting human rights.
