In November 2012, a high-profile public debate over the law and ethics of autonomous weapon systems (AWS) was kicked off by the release of a policy memorandum issued by the United States Department of Defense and a public call to action by Human Rights Watch pressing for a ban. The aim of this chapter is to provide a basic overview of the current normative debates over AWS, as well as the processes through which these debates are taking place at national and international levels.
