This week, delegates to the United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) will discuss the CCW’s agenda for spring 2015. One topic of consideration will be whether to hold further discussions on lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS), emerging technologies that raise significant legal, policy, moral and ethical issues. Michael Horowitz, Paul Scharre and Kelley Sayler examine the issues facing delegates in this policy brief, along with recommendations for action.
