April 19, 2013 – April 20, 2013 all-day


Fordham Law School Visiting Scholars and Research Section on International Law will be holding a workshop on Human Rights and the Use of Drones in International Law on April 19, 2013.

The international war on terror has shifted in recent years to other state actorsť, which is increasingly being executed by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS). This new form of attack takes the shape of an invincible war with significant implications on the local population and for international law. This new art of warfare raises a number of legal issues. Are drone strikes a form of use of force in International Law? If so, who are legally responsible for drone warfare? Should there be standard rules of warfare that include drone strikes? What are the rules of modern warfare? What is the impact of drone strikes on human rights? Should the law be concerned about drone strikes and human rights? These and other questions will be addressed in this workshop.
