In the “global war on terror”, started by the US in the aftermath of 9/11 attacks with the complicity of European governments, the use of remotely piloted aircrafts (drones) has gained momentum. Initially employed for intelligence, surveillance and recognition (ISR) operations, armed drones are now hugely deployed in contemporary armed conflicts as well as lethal operations against alleged terrorists (the socalled targeted killings).
 
Along with the US and Israel, Europe is a leading actor in the use of drone technology. Due its strategic position in the Mediterranean and its military infrastructures made available to the US, Italy plays a pivotal role enhancing drone utilization.
 
The increasing development and deployment of drone technology is not adequately mirrored by public and political debate. Given the alarming paucity of information released by Governments, this conference will to discuss the implication of drone technology from the standpoint of international law, taking into consideration both the political and the military aspects.
