There are a large number of evidence collection projects operating in Iraq. These projects are collecting various types of evidence, of a variety of crimes, to differing legal standards. This work needs to be better coordinated to ensure all evidence is collected to court-ready standards and to ensure that gaps in evidence collection are filled. Through the 'Bringing Daesh to Justice' campaign we are looking at ways to address this need.
