Welcome to APPG on Drones and Modern Conflict
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Drones and Modern Conflict (‘APPG’) was founded in October 2012 (as the APPG on Drones), with its full remit and title officially announced in November 2021. The purpose of our Group is to examine the capabilities and commitments driving contemporary warfare (including working by, with and through partners, use of drones and technological capabilities, and increase in covert operations) which are outpacing conventional oversight mechanisms and safeguarding regimes, and resulting in rising civilian casualties worldwide.
We aim to aid Parliament in promoting the highest standards of legality, transparency and accountability in military operations and strengthen the UK’s commitment to the rules-based international system and maintain its role as a leader in upholding global peace and security.About Us
