The German Ministry of Defense has planned a panel discussion on the political, ethical and legal aspects of the use of armed drones on May 11th between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., Berlin time.

The discussion will be held as the German coalition government will decide on the acquisition of arms for the Heron TP drones that Germany leased from Israel last year.

The discussion will be streamed here. It is possible to submit questions until Monday 9 a.m. by sending a message to BMVgPresseSocialMedia@bmvg.bund.de. Questions can also be asked during the live stream via Twitter: #DrohnenDebatte2020 to @BMVg_Bundeswehr.

Read the position paper on armed drones by the ECCHR and the blog post by Andreas Schüller for more information and commentary on armed drones.
