About this Event
From the invention of the machine-gun, to the proliferation of nuclear weapons, to the use of armed drones, technological advances in war craft have transformed geopolitical rivalries and the great power relations in international affairs.

As humans become more reliant on semi-autonomous or autonomous systems, will war become easier or more difficult to control and prevent? How will war transform, and will it remain an extension of ‘politics by other means?’ As we consider what these developments will mean for the prospects of global peace and stability, this Global Insights panel anticipates and debates ‘The Future of Peace and Conflict: Nuclear Arms, Space and Killer Robots’.
