AGUILAR-ANTON, Mercé; CRUZ-GALLEGOS, Carolina  and  FORERO-FORERO, Olga Stella. From the Bottom to the Top in the International Agenda: the Ottawa Agreement. A Multilateral Institution to Classic Style. Pap.polit. [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.1, pp.255-283. ISSN 0122-4409.

The Ottawa Treaty is a milestone in the history of multilateralism. For the first time thousands of NGOs, UN and Red Cross in a coordinated manner introduced in the international agenda a topic: the end of the use of so-called Mine (MAP), a weapon of war that has caused maiming, killing and suffering to millions. This study aims to analyze the process from the base and show how the question arose to become a matter of international concern, on the other side wanted to discuss the Treaty in the light of the precepts of the theoretical Ruggie (Anatomy of a multilateral institution) and Keohane (legitimacy) to determine how much is about the Ottawa Treaty to a classic multilateral institution.

Keywords : Ottawa Treaty; antipersonal mines; multilateralism; Ottawa Treaty; Land Mines; Foreign Relations.
