The Ottawa Treaty – also known as the Mine Ban Treaty – was signed in 1997 and has since grown to include 161 signatory states. International efforts to raise awareness of the dangers posed by anti-personnel mines have strengthened tremendously as a result, yet a number of noticeable and significant countries remain outside the treaty. In an effort to track progress made by the international mine ban community, the-monitor.org has created several multimedia maps and tables that can be used to education and raise awareness for our cause and those of similar organizations.
