Jody Williams was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work for the banning and clearing of anti-personnel mines.

Jody Williams studied international politics in the 1980s and became involved in relief efforts in war-torn El Salvador. Landmines posed an ever-present threat to the population, and she was responsible for procuring prostheses for children who had lost arms and legs. In 1991, Williams became the driving force behind an international campaign against landmines. As a result of her determination and organizational skills, 1,000 organizations from 60 countries had joined the ICBL by 1997. The Ottawa Convention, signed by 120 countries in 1997 and ratified by 40 countries when it entered into force in 1999, will always be associated with her name and the ICBL. The treaty banned the use, stockpiling, production and transfer of anti-personnel landmines, and included provisions on demining and mandatory humanitarian aid.

«What you do to make the world a better place is all that counts.»
