Afterword

This edition began with an idea, in early 2019, to undertake a broad examination of the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention in celebration of its twentieth anniversary. The aim was to bring together diverse perspectives on this key instrument of humanitarian disarmament, giving readers insight into its accomplishments to date and, of equal emphasis, challenges that the world still must overcome to finally end the appalling suffering caused by landmines.
