Erin Hunt on landmines, cluster munitions and Canadian diplomacy.

Like this podcast? rabble is listener-supported journalism. Chip in to keep piece like this coming.

Erin speaks passionately today about landmines, cluster munitions and why Canadians have played such a significant role in the campaign against these "indiscriminate inhumane weapons," why she thinks this problem is 100 per cent solvable and a new kind of diplomacy.


Since 2003, Erin has been involved in Canadian efforts to ban landmines and cluster munitions and to raise awareness of the rights of survivors to meet their needs while working as a volunteer, an intern, a youth campaigner and a Program Officer.

She is currently the Program Coordinator for Mines Action Canada and a member of the Monitor Victim Assistance team.

Previously, she worked on victim assistance programs in Uganda, youth peace building projects and in child welfare services. Erin is originally from Victoria, B.C., and has a master's degree in Human Security and Peace building from Royal Roads University. You can follow her on Twitter @erinlynnhunt
