This article first outlines the scope of the landmine problem in countries throughout the world and the impact of widespread and often indiscriminate landmine use of people and their environment. Country conditions in the Falkland-Malvinas Islands, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Croatia, and Mozambique provide the basis for an understanding of the multi-dimensional societal problems posed by landmine use. The second part of the article examines the legal framework which governs the use of landmines under international humanitarian law and the third concludes by evaluating the effectiveness of the current legal regime governing the use of landmines in armed conflict and advances proposals for future reform.
