The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at BYU recently hosted Drone Wars, a panel that discussed the legal, ethical and strategic issues relating to the use of drones.  

The panel was moderated by BYU Professor Eric Jensen and featured Christopher M. Jenks, director of the Criminal Justice Clinic and assistant professor of law, Southern Methodist University; Gabor Rona, international legal director, Human Rights First; and our own Gary Brown, Deputy Legal Advisor at ICRC Washington.  

Among other things, the panelists discussed the international humanitarian law aspects of targeting killing and the policy and strategic implications of transparency and secrecy surrounding the U.S. drone program.

My colleague Gary Brown comes in at 26.30.
