For over 5 years, inforce has acted as adviser and consultant to the National Commission for the Fight against Genocide (CNLG) - the Government appointed body responsible for the preservation of all genocide sites throughout Rwanda. The CNLG is charged, on behalf of the victims and survivors, with preserving both the memory and associated physical evidence of genocide within their country. Such evidence includes the remains of the victims and/or artefacts which may aid in proving the ‘actus reus’ of the crime of genocide.
In response to their charge, the CNLG invited inforce to assist them in their mission with the provision of aid and expertise. Consequently, inforce deployed skilled personnel to a number of genocide sites in Rwanda which included those at Murambi, Nyamata, Ntarama, Kinazi and Nyarubuye. In addition inforce personnel provided key informative presentations to an exclusive audience of supporters at the international conference held in Kigali.
inforce went on to provide detailed briefings to members of the Rwandan parliament. Arising from this the CNLG placed a contract with inforce for the design and manufacture of a mobile laboratory and the provision of associated scientific equipment. The mobile laboratory has been designed to be used in the field and is to be deployed at a number of Rwandan genocide sites for scientific, humanitarian, conservation, preservation, training and educational purposes. In line with inforce’s commitment to ‘in territory’ capacity building their bespoke training programme also addresses the training needs of CNLG staff. To assist yet further, inforce has designed and manufactured a number of unique acrylic caskets to be used for long term preservation of human remains whilst allowing for commemorative considerations. These caskets are to be a significant feature of the genocide memorial to be located at Murambi.

inforce was asked by an international organisation to conduct an assessment of clandestine mass graves in a country divided by civil war. We designed, managed and delivered a project to survey a number of sites, develop procedures and protocols for the exhumation, examination and identification of the remains in order to meet the requirements of international investigators. Following this initial phase we were asked to design and deliver a training programme for forensic investigators, thus building the necessary capacity for the investigation to be undertaken by a national team mentored by inforce.
We will appoint one of our team to work with you to define and agree the scope of your project. Our dedicated executive, supported by our team of regional co-ordinators and advisors throughout the world will design, manage and deliver your project within the terms of the agreed scope.
