About the Explosive Weapons Monitor

The Explosive Weapons Monitor is a civil society initiative that conducts research and analysis on harms from and practices of explosive weapon use. This research aims to advance the global recognition and understanding of the full impact on civilians of the use of explosive weapons and to strengthen global efforts to monitor the humanitarian consequences of explosive weapon use.

The Explosive Weapons Monitor is an initiative of the International Network on Explosive Weapons (INEW), a partnership of non-governmental organisations calling for action to prevent human suffering from the use of explosive weapons in populated areas. INEW is coordinated by Article 36, a specialist non-profit organisation focused on reducing harm from weapons.

Monthly updates

The Explosive Weapons Monitor produces a monthly bulletin, which publishes data on incidents of explosive weapon use around the world as reported in open sources. It uses data by Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) and Insecurity Insight, respectively providing information on:

  • Incidents of explosive weapon use and casualties, including deaths and injuries
  • Incidents of explosive weapon use affecting aid access, education and healthcare


The Explosive Weapons Monitor is currently not seeking applications.
