About the Author

Edited by Jens David Ohlin, Vice Dean and Professor of Law, Cornell Law School, US


'In an oversaturated market, it is very difficult to say anything new or interesting about drones, autonomous weapons systems, and cyberwarfare. This new Research Handbook, however, proves the happy exception. Jens Ohlin's collection, which brings together some of the most innovative scholars in public international law, makes brilliant use of the concept of ''remoteness'' to interrogate how these means and methods of warfare are often merely new variations on old themes - but are also in some ways radically new, challenging some of our deepest legal and normative assumptions about the nature of war.'
--Kevin Jon Heller, SOAS, University of London, UK and University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands'Professor Ohlin has brought together a diverse group of talented scholars and practitioners to assess drones, cyber operations, and autonomous systems from a completely novel perspective - remoteness. In doing so, he and his team shed new and important light on topics that lie at the heart of future conflict. Additionally, by focusing on remoteness, this Handbook breaks loose from the intellectual stove-piping that characterizes our often-predictable assessments of emergent methods and means of warfare. It yields valuable insights into a characteristic of weaponry and tactics that will increasingly define warfare in the decades to come. It is a must-read for anyone concerned with international law in the battlespace.'
--Michael Schmitt, University of Exeter, UK'A highly original volume entering a very crowded field, its conceptual focus and the expertise of its contributors will make it a valuable addition to any legal discussion of remote and autonomous warfare. Despite the exceptional daily pace of technological advances, the Handbook's chapters will have a long shelf-life and will inevitably influence some of the most intense controversies of the modern law of armed conflict.'
--Marko Milanovic, University of Nottingham, UK
