The International Committee of the Red Cross has played a key role in the effort to ban anti-personnel landmines. This book provides an overview of the work of the ICRC concerning landmines from 1955 through 1999. It contains International Committee of the Red Cross position papers, working papers, and speeches made by its representatives to the international meetings convened to address the mines issue, including the 1995SH96 Review Conference of the 1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons and the diplomatic meeting that adopted the Ottawa treaty banning anti-personnel mines.

Editorial Reviews

Review of the hardback: 'This compilation of selected ICRC documents has been able to bring to light the Committee's sustained hard work often away from publicity. It is a welcome addition to international humanitarian law literature.' International Studies
