From 16–27 June 2003, States Parties to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons1 (CCW) met in a Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) to discuss a draft proposal for an Instrument on Explosive Remnants of War (ERW).2 A previous article in the Journal of Mine Action3 outlined the background to this process, and the June meeting was the second to take place in 2003. This article explains what was discussed in June, what will happen next and some of the broad issues of interest to the mine action community.
