(This workshop was previously scheduled for Saturday 2:45 p.m.; note new time above)
This workshop will focus on the United States’ militarization of Africa, particularly via the proliferation of drones. How will drones, both armed and surveillance, change the way the US operates militarily in Africa? Who is ultimately benefitting and profiting? As the US increases its presence and training, we will examine ways to promote genuine human security and advocate for non-military solutions.
