2018 is a significant year for those working to ban cluster munitions as it represents the 10th anniversary of the Convention on Cluster Munitions and the 15th anniversary of the Cluster Munition Coalition! In light of this, the CMC is producing a series of short web stories that will explore the international environment in which the organization was founded, progress made on the ban since 2008, and what the future may hold.

The CCM at 10
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on Cluster Munitions! It is therefore fitting to look back at its impact over the years and to look forward to this year’s historic Meeting of States Parties, where states that have yet to join or ratify have a chance to make the 10-year anniversary a truly memorable one.
