An event co-hosted by the School of Politics and International Studies (POLSIS) and the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (AP R2P) at The University of Queensland- St Lucia campus
Join US scholar Denise Garcia to learn about global norms on arms within and beyond the United Nations, in the context of the regimes and global governance literatures, through the lens of ‘Humanitarian Security Regimes’. This seminar will also address the potential rise of new regimes on future weapons including unmanned aerial vehicles, lethal autonomous weapons, or ‘killer robots’, as well as the threats arising from attacks on cyberspace.
Prof Garcia will discuss the highs and lows in efforts to regulate:
- small arms and light weapons,
- cluster bombs,
- conventional weapons in general,
- weapons of mass destruction,
- nuclear weapons
Denise Garcia is the Sadeleer Research Faculty and associate professor in the Department of Political Science and the International Affairs program at Northeastern University in Boston. She is a member of the Academic Council of the United Nations, the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, and the Global South Unit for Mediation.
