Drone Warfare in 2030: Examining the Future of Expanding Drone Use, the Precedent that May be Set, and Constitutional Implications Here and Abroad

Thursday, April 18, 2013
12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
American University Washington College of Law
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
Room 602

The United States’ expanding use of armed drones has sparked numerous discussions on the legality and ethical desirability of their use. Yet the discussions seem to be merely focusing on the nation's current practice and less on other states that will surely be deploying the warfare technology in the near future. This panel will aim to shift the current debate on the use of drones by the US to the question of how increased use will impact the laws of war and our constitutional ideals. To what extent can the US serve as a positive example for the international community with regard to using drones or has a precedent already been set?

Presented by the American Constitution Society, LL.M. Student Board, and the National Security Law Brief
