This document analyses the successful effort to establish an international treaty to ban landmines, providing a detailed examination of the dynamics of the process, the key reasons for its success, and an elaboration on its wider meaning.

In addition, a historical discussion of early campaigns to ban particular weapons such as the dum dum bullet is provided, as well as an assessment of three similar campaigns: the International Criminal Court (ICC), child soldiers, and small arms.
