On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines pays tribute to the thousands of activists, deminers, government officials and other members of the mine ban community who work every day to honor her legacy by sparing no effort to end the suffering caused by antipersonnel landmines.

Lady Di's 1997 visits to Angola and Bosnia & Herzegovina were instrumental in mobilizing public opinion to achieve a ban on antipersonnel mines. Through renewed efforts, let's reach the objective of a mine-free world by 2025.
