Landmines/ERW, Refugees, and Displacement (20 June – World Refugee Day)
Recognizing record high and increasing levels of global displacement and ongoing impact of landmines and cluster munitions, today the Landmine Monitor and Cluster Munition Monitor is publishing Landmines/ERW, Refugees and Displacement, a timely new briefing paper that expands upon and updates developments since the last Monitor report on these important topics in 2013 “Landmines and Refugees: The Risks and the Responsibilities to Protect and Assist Victims.”
This briefing paper update focuses on refugees fleeing from, or into, countries contaminated by landmines and other explosive hazards, including cluster munitions and on the assistance provided to survivors of landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war (ERW) who are refugees or displaced persons.
