The directors of four civil society campaigns will examine how the humanitarian approach to disarmament has influenced their work and how they have adapted it to respond to contemporary challenges. They will discuss efforts to curb the urban use of certain explosive weapons, reduce the environmental impacts of armed conflict, preempt new technology that could autonomously make life-and-death decisions, and control the unlawful trade in arms.
The panelists will include:
Laura Boillot, International Network on Explosive Weapons
Doug Weir, Toxic Remnants of War Network
Mary Wareham, Campaign to Stop Killer Robots
Anna Macdonald, Control Arms
Moderator: Jasmin Nario-Galace, Center for Peace Education
