Abstract [en]

The prohibition of the anti-personnel landmines in 1997 have caused a great debate. The debate itself is quite unilateral, where it is mainly the supporters of the prohibition who is creating scien-tific contribution to the subject. The debate is also directed to if and why a nation should ratify the ban on antipersonnel mines, and because of that, the discussion of how a nation have or could have ratify it has been forgotten. This study examines how the Swedish counter-mobility regulations has changed after the ratification of the Ottawa-convention and the elimination of the anti-personnel mines. The purpose of this essay is to increase the knowledge how the Swedish armed forces have adapted to the ratification of the Ottawa-convention and in the long run contribute to the under-standing on how a political/humanitarian decision can affect the fighting power of a smaller nation as Sweden.

Through analysis of Swedish counter-mobility regulations, it shows that some adaptations have been made, however there is still some unbalance between the methods/tactics and the available landmine equipment which results in less than maximum effect is produced with the counter-mobility actions.
