Recording Casualties of War


Oxford Research Group (ORG) are inviting members of the public to the launch of a new initiative, “The Charter for the Recognition of Every Casualty of Armed Violence” on Thursday, 15 September 2011, at the British Academy in London, 9.30 – 11.30 am.

The Charter contains a set of three core demands on states to ensure that every person killed by armed violence is:

  •  promptly recorded,
  •   correctly identified, and
  •  publicly acknowledged.

The Charter is the first to set out for the international community clear casualty-recording requirements that are grounded in international law. Such recording is vital, because it enables every individual’s death to be recognised in the interest of truth, justice, accountability, and greater public awareness of human losses.
