Disarmament and the Last Twenty Years

What was the world of disarmament like in 1996 when Lloyd Axworthy challenged the world to eliminate the use of landmines? How has it changed in the last twenty years?

In this recording from The Ottawa Process Twenty Years Later in October 2016, Mines Action Canada Executive Director Paul Hannon provides some context to twenty years of mine action, starting with the stark reality of landmine use before the Ottawa Treaty.


Paul Hannon is the Executive Director of Mines Action Canada (MAC), the Canadian member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), which was the co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. MAC is a founding member of the international Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC), launched in 2003, and is also the Canadian member of the CMC. The CMC was nominated for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2011 he led the process to merge the CMC and ICBL.

Paul became the Executive Director of Mines Action Canada in July 1998 and represents MAC on the ICBL-CMC’s Governance Board of which he is the Vice-Chair. He is also a member of the Monitoring and Research Committee which oversees the research and production of the annual Landmine Monitor report and its sister publication the annual Cluster Munition Monitor report.
