2020 Annual Conference Registration
Military Ethics in a Grave New World
Increasingly, states are finding ways to use force to achieve strategic
goals while staying below triggers for traditional war. The rapidly
increasing military capabilities in the areas of cyber warfare,
autonomous weapons systems, the application of artificial intelligence
to military force, and new weapons such as hypersonic missiles, pose
novel ethical challenges addressed poorly at best by previously settled
frameworks for military ethics.
ISME 2020 invites paper proposals that address any aspect of this changing environment: e.g., the restructuring of the international system, new weapons and tactics, war in the gray zone of “little green men,” the building of artificial islands in the South China Sea, other jus ad vim issues, employment of "lawfare," strategic encouragement of irredentist aspirations, internment and “re-education” of cultural and religious minorities on vulnerable flanks, interference in elections, and the impact of these phenomena on the health and well-being of military members, veterans, and other citizens.
