The Forum for Memory and Future, in collaboration with the Institute of Political Science at Saint Joseph University in Beirut, is inviting three experts in forensic sciences to discuss procedures and guidelines in investigating crime scenes including those of assassinations, explosions, and gravesites where missing persons might have been buried dating back to the Lebanese civil war:

Ms. Cindy Mansour: "International standards in managing crime scenes"
Mr. Saleh Mansour: "Human identification and management of crime scenes in Lebanon"
Dr. Joyce Nassar: "Excavating gravesites and identifying missing persons"

This session is part of a series titled "The Anatomy of Political Crimes" that seeks to dissect the different elements that explain the recurrence of politically motivated crimes in Lebanon, ranging from kidnappings to bombings, explosions, and assassinations. These crimes are not only traumatic in their occurrence, but also in the way the political system deals with them. For the third session of the series, three experts will discuss the challenges of managing crime scenes in Lebanon, and their importance in forming a judicial process that establishes facts and leads to the condemnation of culprits. The series is dedicated to the memory of Lokman Slim, founding member of the Forum for Memory and Future, assassinated on 4th February 2021.
