PIR Seminar- International Approaches To Banning Inhumane Weapons


Speaker- Dr Steve Wright

The talk will cover recent successful activities of the CCW including the bans on antipersonnel munitions; blinding lasers, and cluster munitions. Steve will explain some of the legal background including notions of unnecessary suffering, The Martens Clause and what weapons might be considered as an affront to the public conscience. He will end with a discussion of his recent experience at the UN with an NGO team campaigning via the CCW process to outlaw autonomous weapons – lethal semi- intelligent machines which once unleashed, decide for themselves what groups of people to kill.
