The reemergence of the geostrategic competition among others is highly focused on the development of autonomous technology and deployment of autonomous weapons systems. While technological development has always had a profound impact on international law, the structural limitations of the international regulatory regime limit international law’s ability to provide any course on these emerging technologies’ development. Striving to maintain competitive advantage some states have started serious programs in developing autonomous technologies. Moreover, they have launched strategic documents broadcasting their ambitions to deploy autonomous weapons systems. These and other developments have instigated vigorous legal debate ranging from calls to a complete ban of these systems to full support.
