Interview with Elizabeth Minor about casualty recording practice

Professor Spagat interviews Elizabeth Minor of Article 36 on the diverse field of casualty recording and principles of good practice.

In this video I interview Elizabeth Minor of Article 36 about her Work on Casualty Recording.

Elizabeth asked me to post the following clarifying statement about her interview.

“In this interview, Elizabeth describes a study conducted with 40 organisations and individuals that were promised complete anonymity, but also discusses working with members of the Casualty Recorders Network, a public network of over fifty practitioners that can be found at”

At the end of this clip Elizabeth provides advice to people who may be thinking of setting up a casualty recording project. I hope that a few people taking the course are already doing casualty recording and other people may be thinking of setting up a casualty recording project.

If you are doing or thinking of doing casualty recording could you please tell a bit about your activities or plans in the comments section below?

Of course, most of you won’t be casualty recorders or potential casualty recorders. But this is still a great opportunity to ask some casualty recorders about their work.

Upon my request Elizabeth provided the following bio:

Elizabeth Minor is currently an Advisor at the UK-based NGO Article 36, where she undertakes research, policy analysis and advocacy in international forums, focused on strengthening international standards to regulate weapons technologies that cause particular humanitarian harm. Elizabeth was previously a researcher at Every Casualty and Oxford Research Group, where she launched the global Casualty Recorders Network, and was responsible for studies into the methodologies and practices used in the field of documenting and recording the casualties of armed conflict and violence, as undertaken by NGOs, the UN and states. Elizabeth also sits on the Board of the NGO Airwars.
