Humanitarian Disarmament: Banning Killer Robots

Join us for a humanitarian disarmament forum with Mary Wareham, Advocacy Director of Human Rights Watch’s Arms Division and Global Coordinator of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, with a presentation and discussion on fully autonomous weapon systems (aka killer robots), international developments, and the need for New Zealand to develop coherent policy to guide its multilateral disarmament diplomacy on this unprecedented threat to humanity.

The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots is an international coalition of NGOs who are working for a pre-emptive ban on the development, production and use of autonomous weapon systems (killer robots) - robotic weapons with the ability to select targets and attack on their own, without any meaningful human control.

This forum is organised by the Aotearoa New Zealand Campaign to Stop Killer Robots ( ) and co-hosted by Information Science and Computer Science at the University of Otago.
