DIAS and CWS researchers provide evidence to major new UN report

Dr. James Rogers, DIAS Assistant Professor in War Studies within the Centre for War Studies, at University of Southern Denmark, and Dr. Dominika Kunertova provided evidence to the latest UN report on drone warfare and targeted killing.

The report focused on the troubling global diffusion of targeted killings through armed drones and the concerning precedent set by the assassination of Iranian General Quassem Soleiman in January 2020.

Presented to the 44th session of UN Human Rights Council by Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard, the report has been featured by the New York Times, Washington Post, BBC, and the Wall Street Journal (amongst others). President Trump’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, has also released a statement in reaction to the report’s findings.
