The webinar originally occurred on June 2nd, 2017
Duration: 1 hour

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.

Presenters:
Roxana Enriquez Farias | Forensic Anthropologist and President of the Mexican Forensic Anthropology Team
Juan Joel Hernández Olvera | Forensic Anthropologist and research coordinator of the Mexican Forensic Anthropology Team
Diana Bustos Rios | Forensic Anthropologist and coordinator of the Social Documentation Area of the Mexican Forensic Anthropology Team
