Treaty meetings

Each year governments, the CMC, and international organizations gather for the Meeting of States Parties and the Intersessional Meeting.

During these meetings progress in universalizing and implementing the Convention on Cluster Munitions is assessed, and challenges addressed. The CMC has an observer status at these meetings, and at the Review Conferences that measures overall progress every five years. The CMC brings expertise from affected areas, makes sure the voices of cluster munition survivors are heard, shares research and analysis of progress made, discusses with governments to ensure they respect their commitments, hosts side events, and provides information to the media.

Intersessional Meetings of the Convention on Cluster Munitions take place once a year in Geneva, Switzerland, to address issues related to the practical implementation of the convention.

The following pages include CMC statements, summaries of the proceedings, background documents, information for the media, lists of side events, and links to official documents.
