Airwars is a small, London-based NGO focused on monitoring and evaluating claims of civilian harm from international military actions in conflict zones such as Iraq, Syria and Libya. We also work with militaries to help them better understand reported civilian harm, with the goal of reducing such casualties on the battlefield.
Founded in 2014, we were recently described by the New York Times as the pre-eminent organisation in our field, and our research and findings are widely respected and reported upon internationally.
Headquartered at Goldsmiths, University of London, we employ 15 full and part time staff and contractors dispersed across the UK, Europe, North America, the Middle East and North Africa. Our funding is primarily via project-focused grants from large philanthropic funds, as well as some public donations. Airwars is registered in England and Wales as a not for profit company limited by guarantee, and we have also recently secured equivalency determination certification regarding US charity law compliance.
