#EDGESeminar: Rage Against the Machine: The Emergence of the Norm against ‘Killer’ Robots

Rage Against the Machine: The Emergence of the Norm against ‘Killer’ Robots


Launched in London only five years ago, the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots has advocated for the ban of fully autonomous weapons. It remains to be seen whether the NGO coalition’s decision to emphasize the threat of an arms race in military artificial intelligence will prove to be successful. This seminar will address the creation of the advocacy network and its efforts to give rise to the norm of the non-use of fully autonomous weapons in warfare, drawing comparisons with the eventual taboo of nuclear weapons use. The research raises questions about norm-emergence and the space of advocacy networks in global governance.
