New paper from Every Casualty in Jindal Journal of International Affairs

First published 25th Mar 2014

In a new paper published in the Jindal Journal of International Affairs, Every Casualty Research Officer, Elizabeth Minor explores systematic casualty recording as a means for understanding and addressing conflict violence.

The paper, 'Addressing Violence by Recording the Casualties of Conflict: A Study of 40 Practitioners', proposes that there is broad field of casualty recording, made up of a connected range of different approaches to documentation, which operate both during and post-conflict for the benefit of conflict affected communities. These various approaches produce casualty data that can serve a variety of purposes including aiding in the development of evidence-based violence reduction policies, and supporting post-conflict justice and accountability procedures. 

The paper draws on a survey of 40 casualty-recording practitioners undertaken by Every Casualty in 2011. The survey also resulted in the publication of the policy paper, ‘Towards the Recording of Every Casualty’.
