Autonomous Weapon Systems - Summary and Recommendations
Fully autonomous weapon systems cannot be deployed in accordance with the rules of international humanitarian law and must therefore be prohibited. There is also a need for better regulation of semi-autonomous weapon systems. The AIV and the CAVV call on the Dutch government to make efforts to this end. The Netherlands should also invest in the development and responsible use of new defence technologies in collaboration with NATO countries.
This summary is being published pending the translation of the full advisory report 'Autonomous Weapon Systems' - which is expected to be available within two months.
