Humanitarian Law in the world of Drones, Cyber warfare and Space: The technology of warfare is advancing rapidly, but can the law keep up?
Science fiction has become a reality. The international battlefield extends from a nanoscopic scale all the way to outer space. What role can international humanitarian law play in this world of robotics, cyber weapons, internet attacks and predator drones? Do we need new law to control these new means and methods of warfare?
King & Wood Mallesons, the Australian Red Cross and the ANU Centre for Military and Security Law invite you to a discussion with some of the foremost international experts on the laws of weaponry, including:
- Bill Boothby (Associate Professor, Geneva Centre for Security Policy)
- Duncan Blake (Wing Commander, RAAF)
- Rob McLaughlin (Associate Professor, ANU College of Law)
- Hitoshi Nasu (Senior Lecturer, ANU College of Law)
