Mission Statement

The Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (Equipo Argentino de Antropologiaa Forense, EAAF) is a non-governmental, non-profit, scientific organization that applies forensic sciences - mainly forensic anthropology and archaeology- to the investigation of human rights violations worldwide.

Description

It was established in 1984 to investigate the cases of disappeared people in Argentina. Today, the team works in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe in five principal areas: investigative program to conduct forensic investigations of human rights violations; training and advisory assistance on the application of forensic science to human rights cases; scientific documentation to improve the effectiveness of scientific tools for human rights cases; and strengthening the field, to promote national, regional and international forensic standards for the forensic investigation of human rights violations. Through its documentation and dissemination program, EAAF publishes an annual report, circulates a photography exhibit, produced a training video, and is developing books and other training materials. In Argentina, EAAF is a leading organization in the investigation of human rights violations during the last military dictatorship, and has become a vital consultation center for families of victims, journalists, academics and the general public in Argentina.
