Interfaith Conference on Drone Warfare Held By Princeton Theological Seminary

As the United States’ use of drone warfare has become more prevalent with an estimated 400 drone strikes since 20014 carried out by the CIA, people of faith have questioned its morality. In light of differing opinions and a lack of transparent information, the Princeton Theological Seminary will host the first Interfaith Conference on Drone Warfare on January 23-25 to discuss this complex moral debate.

Participants include multi-denominational religious leaders and experts in law, ethics, and military police. The conference goals include making recommendations to the government and the religious community on how to address the use of lethal drones.

Notable panelists include the Most Reverend Richard E. Pates, Professor Jeremy Waldron, Dr. Hassan Abbas, Rob Eshman, Antti Pentikainen, Professor Marjorie Cohn, Dr. George Hunsinger, Rev. Dr. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite.
