November was a busy month for experts from Oxford Research Group and the Remote Control Project as we held a series of outreach events to engage students and medical practitioners in debates on the nature and consequences of remote warfare.

ORG was a partner in organising the annual Medact Forum on 13 November in central London. ORG’s Prof Paul Rogers gave the keynote address opening the Forum, speaking on 1945 to 2045: A Century on the Edge. ORG’s Sustainable Security Programme organised a panel discussion at the Forum on Remote Warfare, presenting some of the findings from Remote Control Project research in Pakistan, Nigeria and the Sahel-Sahara.

The Remote Control project also held two University panel events in November, bringing together experts on remote control warfare (including drones, private military companies, special forces and cyber security) to debate the challenges they pose for contemporary peace and security.

The first event, at the University of York on 19 November, was in collaboration with the York Student Think Tank with speakers debating whether remote control warfare was effective in solving security problems.

The second event, at King’s College London on 26 November, focused on how remote control warfare is changing the way war and security is conducted today and was co-hosted with the King’s War Studies Society and the King’s Politics Society.

Panellists came from a wide range of specialist backgrounds including academics, researchers, analysts and NGO staff. These panel events are part of the Remote Control project’s student outreach programme, with more events planned in Universities across the UK in the New Year.
