Drones: The Future of War?
As drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) assume a growing role in war and counterterrorism efforts, the panel will examine the operational, ethical and legal questions that surround their use. Those who argue in favour of drone strikes claim they have been highly effective in targeting terrorists, while limiting civilian casualties. Critics state they are counterproductive, unethical and violate international law.
With over 50 countries reported to have drone technology, the panel will offer their thoughts on whether ‘remote warfare’ is a development to be welcomed.
