When: Thursday 8 December 2016    1730-1900

Where: Weston Room, Maughan Library, Kings College London, Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1LR

The UK launch of the first-ever set of international standards for recording casualties for use in the field and as a resource for conflict analysts will be held on 8th December.  These Standards for Casualty Recording have been developed by our sister organisation Every Casualty over a three-year period with the intensive involvement of casualty recording organisations around the world, and of major end users such as the International Criminal Court (ICC), UN agencies, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). This work was begun and nurtured while Every Casualty was a programme of Oxford Research Group, between 2007 and 2014.

The publication of these standards is particularly timely in light of the Chilcot Report into the Iraq War which highlights the failure of the UK government properly to acknowledge and account for Iraqi casualties, and calls on the UK government to make every reasonable effort to identify and to understand the likely and actual effects of its military actions on civilians. Iraq Inquiry committee member Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman will join the launch panel to discuss the report’s relevance to Chilcot’s findings.

Panel Speakers:

Hamit Dardagan and John Sloboda, Co-Directors of Every Casualty Worldwide, and Co-founders of Iraq Body Count.

Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, Emeritus Professor of War Studies, King’s College London

Professor Susan Breau, Head of the School of Law, University of Reading.

Professor Michael Spagat, Head of the Department of Economics, Royal Holloway University of London

Chris Woods, Executive Director, Airwars

Chair: Professor Mats Berdal, King’s College London
