flickr-ANZ Cluster Munition Coalition
Governments, the ICBL and international organizations gather each year in a mine-affected country or in Geneva, to assess progress and address challenges in universalizing and implementing the Mine Ban Treaty.
Civil society actively participates in those meetings of the States Parties. The ICBL delegation is comprised of experts, grassroots campaigners and landmine survivors from all over the world.
The Mine Ban Treaty was opened for signature in Ottawa, Canada, on December 3, 1997.
