Podiumsdiskussion

17.02.2014, 00:00 Uhr

Drone strikes in Pakistan have killed countless civilians. The discussions about the use of drones and their political, ethical, moral and legal dimensions have reached the American and European public, parliaments, media, science and judiciaries. However, little is known about the situation of the local population in the affected area of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) on the Pakistani-Afghani border. Three speakers from Pakistan, Noor Khan, Noor Behram and their lawyer Shahzad Akbar, will talk about their personal experiences with drone strikes. They will share their views about the local circumstances and daily life in which drone strikes interfere. They will explain how to document individual strikes and how they have attempted to enforce their rights before the courts. Jennifer Gibson will then put the Pakistani perspective into the broader international advocacy and litigation framework. She will present developments within the US, Europe and on the international level as to the legality and perspectives of the use of drones for targeted killings. Andreas Schüller will lead through the event and comment on the German Federal Prosecutor’s ceased investigation of one specific drone strike in Pakistan.
