Landmine clearance: revealing differences in US and Norwegian approaches to insecurity

Atomium Culture, which facilitates the “exchange and dissemination of the most innovative European research,” has featured my research on how landmine clearance programs can offer an insight into the way donor countries approach security. In an article called “Landmine clearance: revealing differences in US and Norwegian approaches to insecurity“, I argued that US demining funding has been shaped by processes of commercialization and militarization, while Norwegian mine action aid is influenced by the country’s belief that building strong international institutions and goodwill will protect its interests.
