Casualty recording in armed conflict – 2016 SIPRI yearbook

Every Casualty has contributed a chapter on casualty recording to the 2016 SIPRI yearbook. Written by Annabelle Giger, Practice Development Officer, ‘Casualty recording in armed conflict: methods and normative issues’ reviews the various approaches to measuring conflict casualties, and outlines some of the recent international attempts to harmonise and promote casualty recording as a norm within the international system.

The SIPRI Yearbook has been produced every year since 1969 by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. It is recognised globally as an authoritative and independent source for politicians, diplomats, journalists, scholars, students and citizens on armaments, disarmament and international security. It provides an overview of developments in international security, weapons and technology, military expenditure, the arms trade and arms production, and armed conflicts, along with efforts to control conventional, nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
