Simon Robins is a humanitarian practitioner and researcher with an interest in transitional justice, humanitarian protection and human rights. The issue of persons disappeared and missing in armed conflict is a focus of his work, and empirical work on the issue forms the basis of his critique of current practice in transitional justice. He has recently published a book on the topic: Families of the Missing: A test for contemporary approaches to Transitional Justice, with Routledge. He has consulted for a range of international agencies, including the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Save the Children UK, the International Centre for Transitional Justice and the Institute for Security Studies, and has also worked with the ICRC in Geneva as Advisor on missing persons and their families, and as a delegate in the field in Timor-Leste, Uganda and Nepal.
