NCHS’s Kristin Bergtora Sandvik, Nicholas Marsh and Maral Mirshahi discuss the challenges of a future prohibition of lethal autonomous weapons systems, in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Highlighting that there will be much discussion over the scope and meaning of any future ban at the UN expert meeting on lethal autonomous weapons systems, held in Geneva on May 13-16, they argue that: “The campaign is still being shaped; if it is to succeed, a group of states and governments must coalesce around a shared understanding of the problem and its solutions over the next couple of years.”
