Publication Date: 
Thursday, April 24, 2014

On April 15. 2014, for the Advanced Training Program on Humanitarian Action (ATHA), I interviewed Dr. Peter Singer about the impact of new technologies on the evolution of warfare. Dr. Singer is the director of the Center for 21st Century Security Intelligence at the Brookings Institution and is the author of several books on the topic, including his most recent book, co-authored with Allan Friedman, Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know.

Highlights from this interview were featured on a Humanitarian Assistance Webcast broadcast from Harvard University on April 24, 2014. This webcast included a wide array of expert commentators:

  • Mr. Claude Bruderlein, Strategic Advisor, International Committee of the Red Cross
  • Ms. Bonnie Docherty, Senior Researcher in the Arms Division at Human Rights Watch, instructor at the International Human Rights Clinic at Harvard Law School
  • Professor Brian Rappert, Sociology, Philosophy & Anthropology Department, University of Exeter
  • Professor Noel Sharkey, Emeritus Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and Professor of Public Engagement, University of Sheffield; Chairman of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control
  • Professor Michael Lewis, Claude W. Pettit College of Law, Ohio Northern University
