Is the Military Use of Drones Ethically Defensible? Michael Walzer

On March 13th, 2013 the Berkeley Center, the Master of Science in Foreign Service Program, and the Mortara Center for International Studies welcomed Michael Walzer, a leading expert on the just war theory and ethical use of force.

Walzer discussed the history of targeted killings and assassinations, including the moral arguments for and against these actions. He focused on how the invention of the drone changes these moral arguments and will raise critiques of a qualified defense of using drones – putting forward an invitation to worry.
