Webinar: Drone War, Tech Assassinations, and the Future of Conflict
In this discussion, we will explore the causes of the expansion of drone use, including its use as lethal force, as well as the theological, ethical and policy considerations that these raise.
From the first fully autonomous deadly targeting in Libya to “kamikaze” drone attacks on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine and “Over the horizon” capability in Afghanistan, the use of lethal drones is expanding with little restraint.
This event is hosted by the Interfaith Working Group on Drone Warfare.
