Between 300,000 and 2 million persons in Iraq are still missing from the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-88, 1990-91 Gulf War, pre-2003 regime crimes, and post-2003 conflict.  In addition, since 2003 the Baghdad Medico-Legal Institute (MLI) reports that it receives on average 800 bodies per month, of which a significant proportion remain unidentified due to inadequate technical and forensic equipment. Currently, only one team of 25 persons from MoHR has been trained on techniques related to the excavation of mass graves and forensic and DNA analysis. This project will support the development of Iraq’s capacity to address the large numbers of missing persons through building further capacity within MoHR, including the exhumation of Kuwaiti missing POWs.
