Drone Research and Robotic Warfare: The Hopkins Connection
Drone Research and Robotic Warfare: The Hopkins Connection

Friday, April 27
4 to 6 p.m.
Mergenthaler 111
Homewood campus

In recent years, remotely-controlled drones have been used to launch missiles against human targets, even in countries where the United States is not at war, including Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen. Hundreds of noncombatants, including scores of children, have been killed. In Pakistan, where drones now routinely fly over mountain villages, adults and children live in constant fear. The Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University has been directly involved in designing these drones.

Should Hopkins be involved in drone warfare?


PANELISTS:

COL. ANN WRIGHT (RET)
Former U.S. Army policy analyst and U.S. diplomat, anti-drone activist

DEREK DENMAN
Political Science, Johns Hopkins University

A discussion period will follow the presentations.

Sponsored by the JHU Human Rights Working Group.
Co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Organization.
