Welcome to the Official Website of the Institute for International Criminal Investigations

The Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to training professionals in the investigation of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and to supporting international criminal justice and fact-finding mechanisms with training and the deployment of multidisciplinary investigative teams to the scenes of war crimes around the world.

The IICI meets the challenge of 21st Century international criminal justice through its International Investigator Course (IIC), a practical and comprehensive training that combines distance learning and a two-week on-site program to teach the international investigator skills vital to the investigation of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The IICI also offers courses on specific aspects of international criminal investigations and maintains a roster of personnel who have completed its training program and are available to respond to crime scenes in a timely manner to gather, preserve and protect physical evidence and the testimony of victims and witnesses. The IICI roster comprises investigators, lawyers, military officers, forensic scientists, criminal and military analysts, police officers, anthropologists and human rights professionals.

Clyde Snow


The IICI extends its deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the great forensic anthropologist Dr. Clyde Snow.

Dr. Snow was a pioneer in the field of forensic anthropology. His international career took him to Argentina, Croatia, El Salvador, and Iraqi Kurdistan, among other places, where with scientific rigor and infinite patience, he identified remains and deduced from the physical evidence how victims met their end. His work gave comfort to survivors and helped bring justice to perpetrators.

Clyde Snow was one of the first persons to join the IICI’s Council of Advisors.  His life touched the lives of countless people around the world.
