Abstract
This paper identifies the two paths where the Ottawa Treaty to prohibit the use of antipersonnel

landmines has been introduced into the National Assembly of the Republic of

Korea: constituency politics and progressive transnational advocacy. National Assemblymen

who have minefield fields in their districts have been active in promoting the norm to clear

landmines; those who have been involved in progressive transnational advocacy networks

actively participate in the law-making process to provide assistances to landmine victims and

clear anti-personnel landmines. In addition, this paper shows that National Assemblymen’s

ideological position has stronger impacts than their partisan identification in the cosponsorship

of the two bills related with anti-personnel landmine issues at the National

Assembly in South Korea.
