Resources for states

A range of resources to provide governments with information on the Convention on Cluster Munitions

These include briefing papers on different aspects of the convention; overviews of the current signatories, States Parties and states not party; links to the convention's text; ICRC toolkits on how to ratify or accede to the convention; and videos on thematic areas of the convention.

A range of CMC videos are available below in English, French and Spanish. 'Unacceptable Harm' shows the bitter legacy of cluster bombs, and their devastating impact on civilians.

The other videos detail four key areas of the Convention on Cluster Munitions - the international treaty that provides the framework for eradicating these weapons.
