About Every Casualty Worldwide
Every Casualty is dedicated to ensuring that every life lost to armed violence is promptly recorded, correctly identified and publicly acknowledged. Our work is based on the moral imperative to recognise the unique value of every human life, and the practical, legal and societal benefits which result from robust and credible casualty recording.
Every Casualty effectively acts as an independent professional body for casualty recording organisations worldwide with the aim of promoting support for the diverse range of casualty recording practitioners, facilitating greater professionalisation and standardisation of the field, and improving international understanding of casualty recording work. We pursue these aims through a combination of research, capacity building, and advocacy. Applicants should note that while it works closely with casualty recorders, Every Casualty is not itself a casualty recording organisation.
In 2009 Every Casualty established the first (and only) international Casualty Recorders Network, in order to bring together and further develop best practice in the field, and to provide a common voice for international advocacy on casualty recording. In 2016 Every Casualty published an international set of Standards for Casualty Recording, following a three-year research and consultation process with casualty recording organisations and key international organisations who use casualty data, including the ICRC, the ICC, and UNOCHA. Developing the Casualty Recorders Network, increasing its impact, and ensuring the implementation of the Standards are continuing priorities of Every Casualty’s work
