On 31 January 2015, ETH Zürich – one of the leading international universities for technology and the natural sciences – held the conference ‘Drones: From Technology to Policy, Security to Ethics‘. NCHS Director, Kristin Bergtora Sandvik contributed to the conference with a presentation on drones for humanitarian interventions.

By bringing different stakeholder communities together and showcasing  cutting-edge research, the conference looked at the advances being made in drone technology and its broader policy implications.

Sandvik was later interviewed by the Swiss radio station SRF, where she shared her critical assessment on the use of drones for humanitarian purposes.
