Drones

Since 2010, ASU and New America have been working together on various aspects of the use of military and civilian drones around the world. This work began with a 2011 conference that led to an edited volume, Drone Wars: Transforming Conflict, Law, and Policy as well as a number of policy presentations, panel discussions and lectures in DC and at ASU. This research includes three widely cited on-line databases on U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan, drone attacks in Yemen as well as the World of Drones project material collecting information on military drone development in over 80 countries around the world. Research on the use of drones to support international development and the rule of law is found in Drones and Aerial Observation.
