About Us

The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) is a global network in some 100 countries that works for a world free of antipersonnel landmines, where landmine survivors can lead fulfilling lives. The Campaign was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its efforts to bring about the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. Since then, we have been advocating for the words of the treaty to become a reality, demonstrating on a daily basis that civil society has the power to change the world.

Campaign History

The ICBL was launched in 1992 by a group of six non-governmental organizations. Throughout the years, our structure and strategy has evolved with the changing circumstances.

ICBL 20th Anniversary

In 2012 the ICBL celebrated 20 years of campaigning for a world free of landmines. Throughout the year, the ICBL used the anniversary to bring the landmine problem, the Mine Ban Treaty and its achievements, as well as the success of this unique global movement, back into public attention.

Inspiration for other campaigns

A number of studies have been made on why the campaign succeeded in getting a Mine Ban Treaty drawn up in such a short period of time and the successes in its implementation.
