Hello, my name is Jane Taylor and I am the Regional Forensic Manager for Eurasia with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). One of the ways the ICRC contributes to strengthening and developing forensic services is by training local forensic practitioners to increase their knowledge and skill base.

Both Durham and Teesside Universities have excellent reputations in the fields of forensic archaeology and forensic anthropology and their training is internationally recognised. We believe this new online course will make a valuable contribution to the training resources available to us.

It provides an excellent overview of the disciplines and innovative technologies to assist learning for a wide range of practitioners of various backgrounds.

The ICRC is pleased to be able to offer this course to the forensic practitioners that we work with.
