Landmines, IEDs, and other unexploded hazards are a growing threat in the Middle East, killing thousands every year.

If you would like to learn more about this issue, see the recording of MEI's half-day conference, "Landmines, IEDs, and other Explosive Hazards in the Middle East: Addressing a Growing Threat" from September 2018. It was the first such conference in Washington, DC focused exclusively on explosive hazard removal efforts in the region, and featured three panels examining the human impact of explosives across the region, emerging technologies in the field of demining, and potential policy responses and priorities.
