Welcome new editors

This year, there are some exciting changes within the Monitor editorial and leadership team. With Megan Burke leaving the Casualties and Victim Assistance Team to become ICBL-CMC director, team leader Loren Persi has brought on board a number of accomplished new editors, including Erin Hunt and Michael Moore, while Clémence Caraux-Pelletan has remained with the team. Marion Loddo will take the lead in support for mine action findings, continuing work she did last year as a researcher.

In the Monitoring and Research Committee (MRC), Richard MacCormac of DanChurchAid has joined, bringing mine action expertise as Atle Karlsen and Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) have decided to take on other priorities. Amelie Chayer has joined bringing expertise from the ICBL-CMC core staff, replacing Tamar Gabelnik. Megan Burke has replaced Sylvie Brigot-Vilain as an ex officio member.
