Drones are at the center of the debate on modern warfare. However up to now they had not often been the focus of legal analysis. The contributors to this volume analyze the legal framework for drones and other sophisticated systems, such as naval systems, »killer robots,« or swarming technology. Along the lines of humanitarian law, human rights, international criminal law and German constitutional law, the book provides a comprehensive view of the legality of current and future warfare. The perspective of international law is supplemented by articles on constitutional law which deal with the requirement of parliamentary approval for the use of drones, government liability law and the purchase of armed drones by the German armed forces.
