The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) and the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC) are global campaigns in over 90 countries with more than 350 member organizations. Their main offices are currently in Geneva and London.

The ICBL, recipient of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, is recognized as the driving force behind the achievement and ongoing success of the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. The CMC played the key role in the creation of the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions, and now works for its universalization and implementation.

Over the past three years, the CMC, ICBL and their research initiative--Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor ("the Monitor")--have been working closely together to ensure coherence in our respective work and to enhance efficiency in our operations. Starting in 2011, all three will operate under one legal, financial and governance structure in order to ensure even more synergy, to have more impact and to streamline cooperation. A new Governance Board is providing strategic, financial and human resources oversight.

As part of the new arrangement, there will be a restructuring of staff positions. In practical terms, the CMC and ICBL will remain two separate and strong campaigns with dedicated staff for both. Other staff working on administration, media and communications, finance, logistics and administration, and policy will support both campaigns. There will be an open competition for all staff positions, but all current staff members are encouraged to apply.

The first position filled will be that of Executive Director, followed by three other senior positions: CMC Director, ICBL Director, and Policy Director. These are exciting times for our campaigns as we continue our efforts to completely eliminate landmines and cluster munitions from our world and to support a world where victims can lead fulfilling lives.
