Operationalizing Civilian Protection in Mali
The Case for a Civilian Casualty Tracking, Analysis, and Response Cell
This practice note, published in Stability: International Journal of Security and Development, details an emerging best practice of civilian harm mitigation in armed conflict: namely, the creation of civilian casualty tracking, analysis and response processes by a warring party or peace operation force. It asserts that in Iraq, Afghanistan and soon Somalia, these processes to better understand civilian harm and address consequences have positively shaped mission tactics, training, and overall operations. Full abstract available here.
