About us

Every Casualty is an independent not-for-profit organisation, exclusively focused on advancing casualty recording in situations of armed violence. Our in-depth knowledge of the full spectrum of casualty recording work is unmatched by any other civil society, academic, international or state organisation. 

This understanding is founded in over a decade of experience in the field, and the collective expertise of the large and varied network of casualty recording practitioners and casualty data end-users with whom we work. Together these partners represent the full spectrum of casualty recording experiences, covering the majority of current or recent conflicts, at every stage (pre-, mid- and post-conflict), field-based and remote, open or primary sourced, by civil society, state, military or inter-governmental organisations, and ranging in size from one volunteer to a staff of hundreds. Every aspect of our comprehensive approach is founded in the real life experiences and challenges of practising casualty recorders.

Every Casualty supports and promotes the development of casualty recording as a field. We do this through research into and dissemination of best practice, providing expert advice, facilitating peer exchange among practitioners, and encouraging standardisation where applicable. 

Every Casualty also conducts international advocacy to encourage states and inter-governmental organisations to conduct, promote and facilitate casualty recording. This includes supporting and engaging with civil society casualty recorders.

Every Casualty was initially established as a project of the Oxford Research Group in 2007, and became a fully independent organisation in 2014. We are a Company Limited by Guarantee (No. 09082055) registered in England and Wales, and a UK Registered Charity (No. 1166974). Every Casualty has IRC 501(c)(3) status in the United States.
