Anti-Personnel Mines - Armed Non-state Actors - Humanitarian Action - Mine-Ban - Ottawa Convention


This article presents findings and lessons learned from a report on armed non-state actor involvement in mine action. The report shows that it is possible to engage in humanitarian mine action with NSAs. The main conclusion is that including NSAs in mine action has significant benefits since their involvement supports the implementation of the main objective of the Anti-personnel Mine Ban Convention: to reduce the humanitarian impact of AP mines and unexploded ordnance.
