- Are so-called killer robots – machines that can decide autonomously on the use of lethal force – inherently unlawful?
- Labeling states as “rogue” does not lead to change of their behavior. But what if there is a different point in such labeling?
- If combatants follow orders approved by military lawyers, can they still refuse to obey these orders if they find them manifestly unlawful?
- Are crimes against humanity an extension of war crimes or is it a distinct moral and legal category in the context of international criminal law?
These and other questions will be discussed in the “Law and War” workshop.
