Professor Clive Walker speaks at Remote Warfare conference

18 February 2015 |

Professor Emeritus Clive Walker was a principal speaker at a conference held by the University of Leicester on 11 February 2015, entitled 'Remote Warfare: theory, practice and ethics'.

Remote Warfare employs conflict at a distance, involving amongst other tactics, reliance on drones, special forces, local paramilitaries, private security forces, and intelligence. Professor Walker's own paper, ‘An alternative to drone strikes? Rendition and Deportation with Assurances’, sought to explore the idea of what might be called 'Remote Prosecution' as a criminal justice based alternative to military resolutions.
