|Resource title||Recommendations and Report of the Task Force on US Drone Policy|

|Summary text/ abstract||This report represents a preliminary effort to offer analysis and recommendations that could help shape and guide US UAV policy going forward. It looks at the military and national security benefits of UAV technologies, analyzes our current approaches to UAV development and export, and seeks to contextualize the strategic questions relating to the use of lethal UAVs outside traditional battlefields. Ultimately, it offers eight detailed recommendations for overhauling UAV strategy; improving oversight, accountability and transparency; developing forward-looking international norms relating to the use of lethal force in nontraditional settings; and devising sound UAV export control and research and development policies. UAV technologies are here to stay. Used foolishly, they can endanger our interests, diminish regional and global stability, and undermine our values. Used wisely, they can help advance our national security interests even as we foster a more robust international commitment to the rule of law. We believe this report offers a useful framework for ensuring that we use these new technologies wisely, and we look forward to discussing our recommendations with the administration and the public.|
