Oxford Research launch Everycasualty.org


Following the public launch of the Charter for the Recognition of Every Casualty of Armed Violence, the Every Casualty team has redeveloped www.everycasualty.org into a more dynamic, purposeful and accessible public platform.
The new site highlights the Charter and its signatories, and how others can join them. it also gives prominence to the International Practitioner Network (IPN) of casualty recorders. Other new features include a map marking the global representation of the IPN, as well as a revamped News & Comment page that showcases published items of direct relevance to the principle and practice of casualty recording.
Why ‘everyasualty.org’?
We believe no individual should die without their death being recorded. There is nothing special in this belief: it is one that all human societies have put into practice throughout history, and is reflected in the many ways in which we remember and honour the dead.But there is still one cause of death, armed violence, whose victims not only fail to be properly recorded, but predictably occur – and fail to be recorded – en masse.Why should these victims have their lives violently cut short with little or no effort expended to discover the circumstances, or even the very fact, of their death? And how can attempts to reduce the incidence and impact of armed violence in wars and other extreme security breakdowns succeed unless we make genuine efforts to monitor and understand the human consequences?
