Críticas:

The book considers how we might better approach our global problems in an increasingly intertwined world where overlooking even the most basic needs of the many threatens the security of us all. -- Archbishop Emeritus Desmond M. Tutu Banning Landmines: Disarmament, Citizen Diplomacy and Human Security tells the story of and analyzes the first ten years of the Mine Ban Treaty. Civil society and international organization practitioners involved in the implementation of and compliance with the Treaty offer their perspectives of different aspects of that work. The book also considers the impact of the Ottawa Process model - government and civil society partnership that brought about the Treaty - on other issues related to human security. It is an important contribution to the developing body of work on the global movement to ban landmines. -- Dr. Lloyd Axworthy, former Canadian Foreign Minister and President and Vice-Chancellor, University of Winnipeg Banning Landmines: Disarmament, Citizen Diplomacy and Human Security is an important book for anyone interested in the ongoing work around the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty and the impact of the important model of government-civil society partnership not only on Treaty implementation but also on responding to other issues related to peace and human security. Williams, Goose and Wareham have made a tremendous contribution to understanding the critical importance of individual involvement in addressing our common problems. -- Dr. Shirin Ebadi, Iranian human rights lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

Reseña del editor:

Banning Landmines: Disarmament, Citizen Diplomacy, and Human Security looks at accomplishments and setbacks in the crucial first decade of the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. The first half of the book considers the implementation of the prohibitions and humanitarian assistance provisions of the treaty, as well as efforts to promote universal acceptance of the treaty among governments and non-state armed groups. The second half of this book considers the impact of the landmine movement on other issues (such as cluster munitions and disability rights), as well as the extent to which it has contributed to the field of human security. Edited by Nobel Peace Laureate Jody Williams and two other long-time leaders of the mine ban movement, Stephen Goose and Mary Wareham, Banning Landmines features contributions by grassroots activists, diplomatic negotiators, mine survivors, arms experts, and human rights defenders. This diverse group of writers at the forefront of the landmine ban movement is well placed to provide insights into this remarkable process, its precedents, and implications for other work and issues.
