Military technology continues to outpace the law. Recent developments in cyber warfare, space warfare and air and missile warfare have generated creative initiatives by groups of lawyers, scientists, military professionals and NGO’s to articulate legal frameworks that confine these technologies to existing legal regimes. These efforts have been underpinned by the enduring hope that such efforts to distill and apply relevant law will ultimately ameliorate the impacts of these new technologies of war and constrain their malevolent potential.
