Fact Finding Mission

Fact Finding Missions are sent to troubled areas to investigate complicated cases. Their task is to discover facts in an impartial, objective and comprehensive manner. 

Fact Finding Missions are an important tool to gather relevant information and bring this to the attention of the public and they are a signal of our concern about a potentially explosive situation. This tool is used pragmatically and decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.
