On July 1st, the Obama administration provided long-anticipated information concerning civilians killed by U.S. drone strikes in areas outside Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria since 2009. This release represents the first such public disclosure of casualty figures from U.S. drone operations after years of secrecy and assurances of greater transparency. The president also issued an executive order requiring annual disclosures on strikes and civilian casualties.

Please join the Stimson Center for a discussion on the release of the drone casualty data and executive order, and what they contribute to the greater understanding of the extent and impact of the U.S. drone program. Experts will provide analyses of the casualty figures, discuss how the information compares to current assessments and understandings of the U.S. drone program, and offer insights on what the release of this data and the executive order may mean for the next administration. 

What: A discussion on the Obama administration’s recently released drone strike casualty data and executive order.
Where: 1211 Connecticut Ave NW, 8th Fl, Washington, DC 20036
When: Wednesday, July 6, 2016, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
