Mine victim assistance has become one of the main agendas on the international political platform. The United Nations' definition of mine victim assistance includes the identification and clearance of mines, mine risk education and victim assistance. The increase in attention to mine victim assistance is a result of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, as well as efforts from the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
