Conference on Forensic Evidence in the Fight Against Torture

by Kenneth Anderson

If you are around Washington DC this week on Wednesday and Thursday, you might want to (advance) register and attend a major human rights conference at my school, Washington College of Law, American University, “Forensic Evidence in the Fight Against Torture.” My law school’s dean, Claudio Grossman, is a major figure in UN and regional human rights bodies, and is currently chair of the UN Committee Against Torture.  My old friend and colleague, visiting professor Juan Mendez, equally a major figure in UN and regional bodies, is the UN special rapporteur on torture.  (My faculty pretty much staffs several of the leading UN and regional human rights agencies, I am pleased to note.)  This is shaping up as a major conference with participation from leading experts and specialists, and over 150 attendees; there is no charge, but registration online is required.
