Through the use of the media and capturing the public’s attention regarding landmine issues, Kenneth Rutherford considered NGOs as central to the negotiations because NGOs creates the opportunity to negotiate landmine issues such as those that are related to military and security into a humanitarian subject. In other words, shifting problems from military-related to humanitarian issues increases the chances wherein the state will exert an effort to negotiate or solve a list of landmine issues. For example, The UNICEF publicly announced that many children died because of the landmines used during a war. The fact that NGO makes the public aware of the negative health consequences of landmines convinces the government and international policymakers to develop an international protocol that can be used in making people who violate the law to be punished.

Basically, these elements are used in promoting problem definition, interpret the problem casually, evaluate moral issues, and provide a recommendation to solve the landmine issue.
The first level of agenda setting is focused on persuading the government and public to think that landmine issue is important and needs an immediate solution to the problem whereas the second level of the norm agenda setting, NGOs bring landmine issues forward to international attention.
