INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO BAN LANDMINES

The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) is a global network in over 70 countries that works for a world free of antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions, where landmine and cluster munition survivors can lead fulfilling lives. The Campaign was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its efforts to bring about the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. Since then, we have been advocating for the words of the treaty to become a reality, demonstrating on a daily basis that civil society has the power to change the world. As a member of the Cluster Munition Coalition, the ICBL is engaged in the global effort to ban cluster munitions and to address their humanitarian impact.

LANDMINE MONITOR

Landmine Monitor is a civil society-based program providing research and monitoring on progress made in eliminating landmines, cluster munitions, and other explosive remnants of war. Landmine Monitor is renowned for its independent and impartial monitoring and has become the de facto monitoring regime for the Mine Ban Treaty, a role it has begun to undertake for the Convention on Cluster Munitions. Landmine Monitor has gained respect for its work by going beyond the transparency reporting states must provide under disarmament treaties to provide independent reporting and evaluation for governments, international organizations, and civil society on progress made and remaining challenges in eliminating these victim-activated weapons.

STOP EXPLOSIVE INVESTMENTS

Cluster bombs continue to be produced in some countries that have not yet outlawed these weapons. Although countries that have signed the Convention must stop producing cluster bombs, some banks and other financial institutions in or from these countries continue to fund their production by investing in corporations that manufacture them elsewhere.
