Event Details

The huge number of landmines deployed in past and present conflicts in addition to  explosive war remnants are still a major cause of deaths and casualties (estimated by UNMAS under 5200 in 2008) in over 70 states all over the world. The humanitarian demining problem  is complex and requires strong and continuous efforts from the society. Different stakeholders  have a role in helping the afflicted countries to mitigate this problem  by preventing the production and commercialization of landmines, by developing efficient methods to detect  and remove landmines, to destroy stockpiles and by activating international politicians for preventing conflicts (peace keeping).

The seminar will be held in English language by Lorenzo Capineri, Università di Firenze.
