Our paper addresses compliance rates of Latin American countries that are party to the Mine Ban Convention, and seeks to examine the regional impact of the treaty. This study focuses exclusively on Latin American compliance for the first time, as scholarly literature has been silent due to the nature of landmine use in the region. Using data provided from the Landmine Monitor Report, we offer two broad findings: 1) There will be a variation of stockpiled APLs within Latin America; 2) There will be a higher stockpile maintained in nation-states where APLs have been used by either government or NSAG forces. Results of this study help us to better understand the impact of the Mine Ban Convention, as well as the status of international law and humanitarian efforts.
