Border Forensics


Border Forensics (BF) is a new research and investigation agency with the legal status of non-profit association in Geneva, Switzerland, that conducts investigations into migrant rights violations and practices of border violence perpetrated by states, police forces, militaries, and corporations. Working in collaboration with migrant communities and civil society organisations (including international NGOs and media organisations), BF researches, documents and exposes the violence linked to the existence and management of borders. By developing pioneering techniques of geospatial, visual, and open-source investigation, BF produces human rights reports, maps, video reconstructions and other visualisations with the objective to ground demands of accountability for the violation of migrants’ rights and support claims for identification of the deceased.
