Multilateralism and Armed Drones: Escaping the Gridlock

Armed drones continue to proliferate, and States remain largely silent on their legal justifications guiding targeted drone strikes. Without bold leadership and multilateral collaboration, the global community remains at risk of unchecked proliferation and irresponsible use and export of drones.

In this webinar, experts will discuss current trends, initiatives, and opportunities that could be undertaken in a multilateral and collaborative process to build meaningful standards on the proliferation and use of armed drones.
