In 2013 the states parties to the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM), the 1997 Anti-Personnel Mine (APM) Convention and the 1981 Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) Convention continued their work to limit the impact of certain weapons on civilians.1 The greatest achievements of these instruments have been to mitigate new use and to clear land of explosive remnants of war (ERW), leading to a substantial reduction in civilian casualties. Notably, the United Kingdom—formerly a major producer of cluster munitions—declared the complete destruction of its cluster munition stockpile in 2013. The greatest challenges relating to these weapons are violations of the emerging international norms by states that are not parties to the conventions and by non-state actors.
