On November 22 the Remote Warfare Programme Director Emily Knowles delivered a lecture for students and faculty at Exeter University’s Centre for International Law. This profiled the team’s May 2018 report “Lawful but awful? Legal and political challenges of remote warfare and working with partners”.

The report argues that the use of remote warfare creates legal “grey zones” which may leave the UK open to legal liability and, perhaps as importantly, it argues that just because something is legal does not mean it is a good strategy.
