At the conclusion of their research, the team will hold a follow-up meeting with practitioners and representatives of human rights organizations and family groups to describe their findings and present policy and practice recommendations. They also will write case studies and comparative analyses for academic journals and produce a white paper that highlights the major ethical challenges at all stages of the identification process. In addition, they plan to publish a collection of oral histories documenting the family and community perspective on missing people in a book series called "Voice of Witness," which was founded by research team member Lola Vollen and author Dave Eggers.

"People in the aftermath of conflict and disaster need basic things like food and shelter," Aronson said. "We want to find out from an ethical and policy standpoint what else we owe people who lose family members and how those factors ought to be prioritized. These have all been understudied problems until now."
