DRONETHICS: Emergent Ethics of Drone Violence 

The increasing use of armed, uninhabited aircraft (drones) is a serious political challenge with implications for security and justice worldwide. Drone technology is attracting high levels of investment, drones controlled remotely are becoming more numerous, and technological momentum toward drones controlled by artificial intelligence (AI) is building. Many human lives are at stake in this, so the violent use of drones continues to raise ethical questions. This project - Emergent Ethics of Drone Violence: Toward a Comprehensive Governance Framework (DRONETHICS) - systematically addresses an urgent need to clarify the morality of ‘drone violence’, and it aims to generate research-based recommendations on how to restrain and manage this violence justly.
