The identification and repatriation of individuals killed and “disappeared” during the recent conflict in Libya and the previous regime of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi constitute one of the most urgent challenges facing the interim government of Libya. The legitimacy of any future government will be based in part on the way in which these identifications and repatriations, as well as any truth-seeking efforts, are conducted.

Since 2011, PHR has collaborated with the Libyan Ministry for the Affairs of Families of Martyrs and Missing (MAFMM), the Libyan Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO), the Ministry of Interior (MoI), and the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to enhance forensic human identifications.

The Human Identification and Repatriation of Remains Needs Assessment and Gap Analysis Report is the result of a request to PHR by the MAFMM, the PGO, and the nongovernmental civil society organization “Free Generation Movement - Mafqood.”
