An intergovernmental debate on emerging technologies in the area of autonomous weapon systems (AWS) started in 2013 under the auspices of the 1981 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW Convention).1 The debate, which has been led since 2017 by a group of governmental experts (GGE), focuses on the humanitarian and security challenges posed by the development and use of AWS.2 From the start, the underlying policy question has been whether such challenges warrant the adoption of a new, legally binding regulation, such as a new protocol to the CCW Convention.3 Despite nearly a decade of expert discussions, states continued to express different views on that question in 2022.
