In light of the upcoming United Nations General Assembly First Committee, the Reaching Critical Will programme publishes a briefing book highlighting critical disarmament topics, and what governments can do to achieve progress on these issues. The topic of armed drones has been covered by Wim Zwijnenburg (PAX).
“The General Assembly’s work on disarmament is conducted through its First Committee. This briefing book provides a quick overview of the state of play on some of the most pressing issues that will be addressed at this year’s First Committee. It also outlines recommendations for governments from some of the key civil society groups working on these topics. The civil society organisations, coalitions, and campaigns participating most actively at First Committee have argued consistently that we can and must replace watered-down outcomes with real results that advance human security and social and economic justice.”
