Eighty percent of the world’s countries have agreed to be bound by the Mine Ban Treaty, and many others have indicated their intention to join in the future. Find here the list of all States Parties, some key dates (ratification/accession, entry into force) as well as their deadlines for stockpile destruction and mine clearance.
Most of the countries that have not joined the treaty yet, abide de facto by its provisions and have stopped using, selling and – in many cases - producing landmines. Find here the list of countries that still remain outside the treaty, including signatories that have not yet ratified.
Non-state armed groups are using antipersonnel mines in more countries than government forces. In order to achieve a truly universal ban on these weapons, non-state armed groups must be encouraged to ban them. A significant number of non-state armed groups have already pledged to halt landmine use.
