This section of the site is aimed at journalists, bookers, photographers and other members of the media interested in issues related to cluster munitions.
A central goal of the CMC is to raise public awareness about the range of issues at stake and the importance of banning cluster bombs. In collaboration with our CMC members in over 100 countries, we seek to provide as much up to date and relevant information as possible to journalists covering related topics.
