International Regulation of Emerging Military Technologies
Case Western Reserve University School of Law
September 5-6, 2014
Case Western Reserve University School of Law will host a major symposium on “International Regulation of Emerging Military Technologies” on September 5, 2014.
The conference is being organized by the Consortium on Emerging Military Technologies, Military Operations, and National Security (CETMONS), directed by CWRU Law Professor Maxwell Mehlman, and the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center, which is directed by Interim Dean Michael Scharf.
The conference is made possible by a generous grant of the Wolf Family Foundation and support from the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence.
The conference will feature prominent experts in military technology, operations, and ethics, along with experts in international law and arms control, who will discuss appropriate ways to regulate four categories of emerging technology: autonomous robotic weapons, military use of genomic science, cyber-warfare, and non-lethal weaponry. Articles by the speakers will be published in a special double issue of the Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law.
