Helge Brunborg (Social and Demographic Research, Statistics Norway)

04/29/2013, at noon in room 6050 ISR-Thompson.

The presentation will be based on the population project at the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague. The goal of the project was to estimate the number of dead and missing persons during the armed conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1992-1995. The presentation will focus on the study of dead and missing connected with the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995, which is known as the worst massacre in Europe since World War II. Results from this study have been presented to the court in a number of trials in written reports and oral testimonies, leading to convictions for war crimes and genocide. The use of micro data in court proceedings has presented special challenges with regard to data quality and methods.
