Focus on drones and targeted killing at forthcoming human rights conference

The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) and Amnesty International are hosting a conference entitled TEN YEARS AFTER 9/11  in Berlin on June 29 to map how the ‘war on terror’ is shaping new areas of our everyday lives and identify the challenges ahead for those fighting for human rights and social justice across the security field.

While the whole event, looks interesting, one particular panel at the conference, will explore the issue of drones and targeted killing with an excellent line up of contributors and they will also be posting articles relevant to the issue on the conference website.

The organisers will also be audio streaming the conference live to allow all those interested in these issues to join the discussion, regardless of where they are.  They will also be gathering questions from online listeners, who can submit questions or comments either via email or as a comment post on their website.

  1. I am very pleased to hear about this conference. It is vital that there things are kept in the public mind. I am very concerned about the lack of media reporting specially of drones. Keep it up.
