The potential use of new technological and biological resources to augment warfighters with enhanced biological and technological capabilities may end up adding to growing unease about the speed with which new technologies are de- humanising warfare. Do we need to anticipate these new developments by putting in place technology specific regulations? How should organisations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) or International Committee for Robot Arms Control (IRAC) respond to futuristic warfighters in the rapidly evolving battlefield? In their comprehensive study of enhanced warfighters, Lin et al. (2013, p. 29) conclude that regulatory oversight could be maintained under Geneva Additional Protocol I (API) Article 36 by regarding enhanced warfighters as new weapons. The author suggests that understanding the nature of the problem of disconnection is an essential prelude to ensuring that debates on emerging and futuristic technologies reflect the complexity of interactions between law, technology and policy.
