Discussion about drones has to date mostly centred around their use in military operations in the Middle East. Public opinion has been predominantly negative; however, part of the problem was that discussions about the technology itself has been difficult to disentangle from the uses of the technology. Now drones are being taken out of the warzone, and their use is being proposed for a variety of civilian purposes. What are these uses, and should we be worried?

Recent advances in drone technology and applications have been driven by the pursuit of military advantage in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Current and future advances are and will be fueled by commercial and wider security concerns. This masterclass will explore current and future ethical challenges, setting them in a broad social and political context.
