Professor Collins convened a highly successful public seminar and high level meeting in Santiago, Chile on the theme of
responses to enforced disappearance.
Representatives from the UN, International Red Cross, and Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team discussed recent innovations in Peru and international duties under the relevant UN Convention with colleagues, experts and activists from a range of Chilean
agencies. The events deepen and consolidate a line of work begun with British Academy and British Council (Newton) collaborations from 2015 and 2016, and will continue in April 2017 with academic panels and public events in Lima, Peru.
