PSIO, Program for the Study of International Organizations
Globally, humanitarian and human rights actors are increasingly approaching not only the armed forces of States, but also those of non-State actors (NSAs) to try to reduce the abuses committed during armed conflict. This study is the third volume of a project that investigates the involvement of NSAs in the landmine problem, both in its negative (use of landmines) and positive (contribution to mine
action) aspects. The report summarizes and analyzes the main findings of the project, and applies these findings to other related issues – child soldiers and small arms – as well as places the issue in the broader context of NSA engagement.
