World on Trial Screening


World on Trial Screening

Join us for the premiere screening of World on Trial 's "Drones and Human Rights" at 6 p.m. on February 12 in the Lewis Katz Building's Sutliff Auditorium, followed by a discussion and reception with the program's creator and host, Randall RobinsonDistinguished Scholar in Residence​ at Penn State Law. 

The U.S. military now trains more drone pilots than fighter pilots. Drones have been credited with effectively targeting suspected terrorists – but many have denounced the government's use of drones as violating fundamental human rights laws.  

In the second episode of the series, World on Trial, juries around the world debate whether the use of drones by the U.S. government is a legal and effective counterterrorism tactic or a violation of the right to life.
