The launch meeting was hosted by Madame Christine Beerli, Vice President of the ICRC.  A full report, including a video of the event and supporting material, will be published here in the coming weeks.

An article on the standards and why they matter, written by Every Casualty co-directors Hamit Dardagan and John Sloboda, has been published by the ICRC on their Law and Policy Blog.

These standards are the culmination of efforts by many parties who supported their development and production with their expert input and commentary, good will and material assistance. They mark an important and concrete step towards the ultimate goal of all these efforts: a world in which every casualty or armed violence is promptly recorded, correctly identified and publicly acknowledged.
