• The Center and New America work on three widely cited on-line databases on U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan, in Yemen and drone development in over 80 countries.

  • The Center is working with academics and practitioners to address the lack of methodological coherence among multiple groups gathering and analyzing fieldwork based human rights data.

  • We face an important moment for developing creative ways to regulate autonomous weapons that are likely to transform conflict in ways that we can only now imagine.
