The first year of the Trump administration demonstrated President Trump’s willingness to continue to rely on armed drones to conduct U.S. military and counterterrorism operations, though key questions remain about the administration’s approach to and reported revisions of U.S. drone policy. Such uncertainty has contributed to enduring questions about the legality, efficacy, and legitimacy of the U.S. drone program. And the drone debate continues.
Join the Stimson Center for an expert discussion on the current status of U.S. drone policy. Panelists will review shifts in policy priorities and discuss key findings and recommendations from a new Stimson report. The event will serve as the launch for An Action Plan on U.S. Drone Policy: Recommendations for the Trump Administration.
