Nuffield Foundation grant: Study of Iraq civilian casualty reporting

The NPCU has received a Nuffield Foundation small grant for a project, ‘Comparing British and International Civilian Casualties: Mining the Iraq Body Count’. The project is a collaboration with Prof. John Sloboda and colleagues at Iraq Body Count, beginning in February 2010.

As conflict in Iraq continues to claim civilian casualties, the project compares total information about civilian casualties available in the global media infrastructure per se with casualty information reported in different national media, and seeks to explain why such information is filtered differently in particular countries and cultures.
