Advocacy and International Law, David Atwood, GICHD, arms control, disarmament, mine action, conventional weapons
The purpose of this study is two-fold:
1) To examine the changing nature of arms control and disarmament, focusing on what appear to be a few of the most promising frameworks for tackling the relationship between weapons management and the wider goals of development, security and peacebuilding
2) To reflect that thinking back onto mine action itself.
The study, by providing an overview of the wider context within which mine action is operating, sketches out dimensions that seem of particular relevance to thinking about the future of mine action in an increasingly complex and challenging global context.
