The conference is hosted by the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School with generous support from the Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research, and in collaboration with the Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace, and the National Science Foundation.
The conference will explore a range of issues in the ethics of war, paying particular attention to the challenges posed to our moral understanding of war by the ‘changing character of warfare’ – for example, by new and emerging technology – as well as by recent developments in just war theory. A schedule of all papers is available here.
The conference organisers are BJ Strawser, Fritz Allhoff and Helen Frowe.
