By: Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University

March 14, 2013 - Ten years after the US-led invasion of Iraq on March 19, 2003, the Costs of War project has released the first comprehensive analysis of direct and indirect human and economic costs of the war that followed.

According to the report, the war has killed at least 190,000 people, including men and women in uniform, contractors and civilians and will cost the U.S. $2.2 trillion – a figure that far exceeds the initial 2002 estimates by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget of $50 to $60 billion. Catherine Lutz, the Thomas J. Watson, Jr. Family Professor of Anthropology and International Studies at the Institute, co-directs the project with Neta C. Crawford, professor of political science at Boston University.

The project's complete findings are available at costsofwar.org.
