Inscription.  The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), founded in 1992 by Jody Williams, is a global network of some 100 countries working for a world free of landmines. The Campaign (ICBL) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its efforts to bring about the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. One hundred twenty-one countries, not including the United States, signed the treaty.

Every country must contribute to the eradication of these weapons if it is committed to preventing civilian harm during and after armed conflict.
