Creating a Landmine-Free World

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Twenty years ago, countries all over the world adopted the Ottawa Treaty, banning the use of anti-personnel landmines. Non-governmental organizations and the Canadian government played a key role in persuading most states to sign on, and today over 160 countries are signatories to the treaty. The Agenda looks back at this achievement, what it has accomplished, and the damage caused by landmines in the developing world.
