In Pursuit of Global Drone Standards

  • Stimson Center 1211 Connecticut Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Stimson Center is hosting a panel discussion on efforts to establish global standards for drone transfer and use. Experts will discuss the current status and future prospects of the Joint Declaration for the Export and Subsequent Use of Armed or Strike-enabled Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and will provide insight on what is needed to ensure that such an agreement is effective and successful. 

In 2016, the Obama administration announced a joint declaration for the export and use of armed drones, which has served as an impetus for future discussions on the topic. The declaration has since been signed by more than 50 countries with plans to convene multilateral discussions throughout 2017. As the Trump administration enters office, many observers are questioning how these efforts will progress in the new year.
