Military operations using drones are not heralded as victories or covered widely in the mainstream press. As a result, the use of drones in warfare is largely invisible to people in the U.S. Unless a person actively seeks out information, this form of war remains invisible to those in whose name the operations are carried out. This conference will feature speakers from different areas of expertise on the problems with and the ramifications of the use of drones in warfare. This is not a conference to debate the use of drones in warfare but a conference to encourage students, scholars, and citizens to be informed about problems related to the use of drones in warfare. This is a conference for people of different faiths and people who do not profess a faith, people who already are concerned about the ramifications of using drones in warfare, and people who are basically unaware of the use of drones in warfare. There will be time to eat together, to ask questions of one another, and to learn about further resources.
Events will be held in Durham at Trinity United Methodist Church and Duke Divinity School. The Council’s Peace Committee is a sponsor. Register here.
