It has been almost twenty four years since the signing of The Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on the Destruction—popularly known as the Ottawa Treaty.

However, significant challenges remain, and there has been back-tracking. The USA, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Iran and some others continue to decline or reject adding their signatures, and in some cases are believed to have continued to make use of these weapons in conflict; and landmines have continued to maim or kill refugees and internally displaced people seeking to return to their homes.

Hosted and moderated by Canadian Landmine Foundation chairman Alistair Edgar, this event will begin with a short ten-minute documentary on the origins of the Ottawa Treaty and Canada’s instrumental role in its creation. Our speakers, Lloyd Axworthy and Olivia R. Fernandes, will then discuss the achievements of the treaty, the threats that landmines continue to pose to innocent civilian populations, and the practical and policy challenges that remain to be addressed.
