The 1997 Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction (APM Convention) prohibits, among other things, the use, development, production and transfer of anti-personnel mines. These are mines that detonate on human contact, that is they are ‘victim-activated’, and therefore encompass improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that act as APMs, also known as ‘improvised mines’.1 At the 2014 Review Conference, states parties set a target of fully eliminating APMs and addressing the consequences of past use by 2025.
