Accurate records and estimates of civilian casualties are essential to the strategic peacebuilding that should follow conflicts. Creating such casualty records requires strong political resolve and strong science. The chapter summarizes the scientific progress detailed in preceding chapters, as well as some of the political obstacles to implementation. It concludes with a call for an international convention on recording civilian casualties in times of war, to be supported by the scientific and material resources needed to conduct the work with the quality and the dignity that it deserves.
