 In the last decade, the United States has increasingly used drones to
carry out air strikes and conduct surveillance as part of its 'War on
Terror', often in areas where there is no declared war. As the US reduces
its military footprint in the face of a growing budgetary crisis, it
continues to expand its reliance on drones in areas like Somalia, Yemen,
and Pakistan. Are drones legal though? Should questions of legality drive
US military policy?

  Richard Falk, the former Albert G. Milbank Emeritus Professor of
International Law and Practice at Princeton University, has served since
2008 as the United Nations Special Rapporteur for "the situation of human
rights in the Palestinian territories since 1967." He has authored over
twenty books on international law and politics, focusing on core issues at
the intersection of law, human rights, and war, was a member of the
Independent International Commission on Kosovo (1999-2001), and is
currently a Visiting Distinguished Professor at the University of
California at Santa Barbara.
