Since June we have been working with Airwars, an organisation who monitor and assess civilian harm from international military actions in Iraq, Syria and now in Libya. They “seek transparency and accountability from militaries and governments, while advocating on behalf of affected communities.”
Recently, it became clear that a more considered and future-proof method for storing their data was required. We are working closely with the team to make these improvements, which has also allowed us to design a new archive interface for the Airwars website, launched in June as a microsite for new work concerning airstrikes in Libya since the end of the NATO campaign in 2011.
Over the next few months we will apply this redesign to all of the conflicts that Airwars monitors.
