Drones and Human Rights (#102) Duration: 56:50 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

World on Trial will present both sides of sharply contested international human rights issues in the context of courtroom trials before live multinational juries. Remote juries at distinguished universities throughout the world will view the proceedings by video, deliberate, and also render verdicts. Each episode will be filmed in a courtroom with simultaneous translation before a live audience and jury. World on Trial: Drones and Human Rights examines the legality of the use of unmanned drones by the U.S. government to target suspected terrorists. In recent years, the U.S. inventory of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has grown from 167 in 2002 to over 7,500 today, and drones account for approximately 30 percent of all military aircraft. The U.S. military now trains more unmanned pilots than traditional fighter pilots. At least 40 other countries, including Russia, China and Iran are developing unmanned systems technology. The reach of this technology goes well beyond military use, and spans civil law enforcement and commercial uses.
