Landmines

The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) has been working to achieve a world without Landmines for over 20 years. As an active member, PAX takes part in this campaign to make sure landmines are eradicated for good. We encourage countries to commit themselves to the Mine Ban Treaty (MBT). We encourage states that are already members to strictly implement the treaty

Situation & Urgency

In 1997 the international Mine Ban Treaty came into being. To date,  well over 160 countries have joined, including all European Union countries. A large number of  member states to the Mine Ban Treaty have destroyed their stockpiles, together adding up to more than 48 million destroyed landmines. Moreover, the States Parties are under the obligation to clear land that is contaminated by landmines to prevent future humanitarian harm.
