Abstract:     
The widespread use of landmines is commonplace in countries with armed conflicts. In the Colombian case, the use of these weapons by terrorist groups such as FARC, has noticeably increased in recent years, particularly since the implementation of the Democratic Security Policy. Clearly, terrorist groups in Colombia have found that landmines are a useful and effective method to contain the military offensive and to protect, among others, areas where illegal coca crops number. Indeed, this strategy has placed Colombia among the countries with the highest incidence of accidents and incidents related to landmines. This paper examines the problem of landmines in Colombia, and reviews mine clearance experiences in other countries in an effort to seek useful alternatives to demining applicable in the Colombian context.
