The Mine Action Review Team

The work of the Mine Action Review is produced by a team of researchers dedicated to assessing progress in survey and clearance in accordance with the obligations laid down in the Convention on Cluster Munitions and the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention.

The Mine Action Review combines desk study, interviews, reviews of reports, and field missions to generate its reports. Please feel free to email us at stuartm@npaid.org.
