Global CWD Repository

The Global Conventional Weapons Destruction (CWD) Repository was established by the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery at James Madison University in 2018 to serve as the central information archives for the global humanitarian mine action (HMA) and physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) communities. This repository includes the entirety of The Journal of Conventional Weapons Destruction, which is also available as a stand-alone repository here. We welcome submissions from all individuals and organizations who have research, studies or documentation related to the policy, implementation, or monitoring of HMA and PSSM activities.

Submit your materials to the repository here.
