Finish the Job

The promise of the Mine Ban Treaty will be fulfilled when the norm against use of antipersonnel mines is universal, and when States Parties to the treaty have fully implemented their key treaty obligations -- mine clearance, stockpile destruction, and victim assistance.

The ICBL has issued a Completion Challenge calling on the mine ban community to reach these goals within a decade of the treaty’s Third Review Conference in 2014. It will take hard work, ingenuity, and political determination, but the ICBL believes it can be done! It is time to finish the job!
