The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) and the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC) are global campaigns in nearly 100 countries with more than 350 member organizations. Their main offices are currently in Geneva and London.
The ICBL, recipient of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, is recognized as the driving force behind the achievement and ongoing success of the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. The CMC played the key role in the creation of the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions, and now works for its universalization and implementation.
