On 19 November 2017, Geopolitis explored the challenges of increasing automatization of weapons systems. The development of Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems offers political, strategic and military opportunities. Yet these weapon systems also pose legal questions and ethical concerns. From 13 to 17 November 2017 at the UN in Geneva, the Group of Governmental Experts on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems addressed these issues and discussed about possible international regulations. GCSP will continue to support the respective policy developments through executive education, dialogue and policy analysis on security and law.
