Center for Civil Liberties and Public International Law & Policy Group opening a series of public lectures dedicated to IHL/LOAC (International humanitarian law/Law of Armed Conflict) studies.

The US military has updated its Department of Defense directive to focus on the use of autonomous weapons, marking its first revision in a decade. The development follows the announcement by NATO in October 2022 of an implementation plan designed to maintain the alliance's technological lead. The increasing use of semi-autonomous missiles in Ukraine is creating pressure to use fully autonomous weapons on the battlefield. However, critics, including the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, argue that autonomous weapons lack the judgment required to distinguish between civilians and legitimate military targets, and that the risk of weapons being used by terrorists and other non-state actors is too high.

For some time Lethal autonomous weapons have now been used on the battlefield. Ukraine is no exception. Both sides use drones for reconnaissance and conduct of hostilities.

Our lecturer Dr. Gregory P. Noone will examine various aspects of LAWs including:

– the key issues raised by autonomous weapon systems under international humanitarian law (IHL);
– legal terminology, definition surrounding LAWs;
– what are the ethical concerns of killer robots?
– are lethal autonomous weapons unethical?
– are killer robots banned?
– what weapons classified under the definition of Lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS)?
– did the UN fail to agree on the killer robot ban?
– which countries are against the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots?
– are existing international humanitarian law is sufficient enough regulation for this area?
– what is the law of robotic warfare?
– and how all of this concerns Ukraine now.

Dr. Gregory P. Noone will put IHL norms into the present 2022-2023 Russia aggression.
