Get AOAV’s explosive violence data

AOAV’s monitoring project, launched in October 2010, uses English-language media reports to capture information on who has been killed and injured by incidents of explosive violence.

Between 2011 and 2016 we have seen an almost 48% rise in civilian deaths and injuries around the world as a result of explosive violence.

Our reports, which can be accessed below, are built on a coherent data-base.  For those who want to track the changing impact of explosive violence globally, AOAV’s data can be accessed here: AOAV 2011-2016 data overview
