Editorial Reviews


The book considers how we might better approach our global problems in an increasingly intertwined world where overlooking even the most basic needs of the many threatens the security of us all. (Archbishop Emeritus Desmond M. Tutu)

Banning Landmines: Disarmament, Citizen Diplomacy and Human Security tells the story of and analyzes the first ten years of the Mine Ban Treaty. Civil society and international organization practitioners involved in the implementation of and compliance with the Treaty offer their perspectives of different aspects of that work. The book also considers the impact of the Ottawa Process model ― government and civil society partnership that brought about the Treaty ― on other issues related to human security. It is an important contribution to the developing body of work on the global movement to ban landmines. (Dr. Lloyd Axworthy, former Canadian Foreign Minister and President and Vice-Chancellor, University of Winnipeg)

Banning Landmines: Disarmament, Citizen Diplomacy and Human Security is an important book for anyone interested in the ongoing work around the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty and the impact of the important model of government-civil society partnership not only on Treaty implementation but also on responding to other issues related to peace and human security. Williams, Goose and Wareham have made a tremendous contribution to understanding the critical importance of individual involvement in addressing our common problems. (Dr. Shirin Ebadi, Iranian human rights lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate)
