The people

Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor is the knowledge leader on the landmines, cluster munitions, and explosive remnants issues in large part due to the strength of its global research network.

Researchers gather information on the ground in their country or area – information that in many cases could not be gathered remotely. These researchers are drawn from the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) and Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC)’s campaigning coalition and from other elements of civil society, including journalists, academics, and research institutions.*
