This Comment analyzes the impact of landmine use on civilians, the effect of international law on landmine warfare, and the proposed changes to international law in response to the harm inflicted upon civilians. The Comment concludes that the United Nations Review Conference will not adopt a total ban on the production, use, transfer, and stockpiling of landmines, and therefore will fail in its efforts to protect civilians.
