James Rogers: The “Second Drone Age” Requires a New International Accord
“The world has entered a second drone age, in which new “Drone Powers” use remotely operated military technologies as the spearhead of state power, at the cost of thousands of lives.” - James Rogers and Agnes Callamard
Agnes Callamard is the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary, or Arbitrary Executions and has recently published the report “Use of armed drones for targeted killings” for the Human Rights Council Forty-fourth session.
James Rogers is DIAS Fellow and Assistant Professor in War Studies, within the Center for War Studies, at the University of Southern Denmark. He is also Special Adviser to the UK Parliament’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Drones and NATO Country Director of the Vulnerabilities of the Drone Age project.
