Abstract:

In this issue of The Journal, our Editorial section examines the relationship between improvised explosive devices IED and the International Mine Action Standards IMAS. The evolving nature of humanitarian mine action HMAparticularly in areas such as Iraq and Syriahas generated debate on how to incorporate IEDs into the current IMAS or whether to create entirely new standards specific to IEDs. With thought-provoking contributions from Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Deminings GICHD Guy Rhodes and Danish Demining Groups DDG Robert Keeley, we welcome community feedback and contributions from the field for Issue 22.1 Spring 2018.
