Original Webinar took Place on Thursday, June 2nd, 2017
This webinar provided an overview of the development of forensic anthropology worldwide, but above all in Mexico, and how our team has adapted by means of feedback and dialogue with people and groups seeking missing persons information. In recent years, the development of forensic anthropology has taken an important turn in its scope, initially the main objective was based on the identification of human remains (sexing, estimated age, recognizing skeletal trauma and possibly, knowing the biological ancestry). However, in the last two decades, forensic anthropologists around the world have been heavily involved in trials of serious human rights violations in Europe, Africa, South America and recently in Mexico.
Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
A certificate of completion is available for all who register and attend this webinar.
