Towards Ottawa : A Total Ban Treaty on Anti-Personnel Landmines

"It is the purpose of this paper to look briefly at the general forums that are available for discussion of the landmine issue and to describe one of these mechanisms for action in some detail: the Ottawa Process and all the meetings leading from Ottawa 1996 to Ottawa 1997. It is hoped that this paper will assist in understanding the different postures and problems which have emerged so far in the discussion of banning anti-personnel landmines."
