Emerging, cross-cutting and other issues

Alas, the technology of weaponry is anything but static—new weapons are emerging all the time. Scarcely a day goes by without new references to cyberweapons, lethal autonomous weapons and countless other diabolical inventions designed to kill or injure. Many of these weapons raise profound questions of accountability, especially given that their victims would largely be civilians. We have a variety of expert groups, as well as national governments, looking into these weapons to explore possibilities for developing new norms governing their use or their prohibition.
