Remote Control Project, Oxford Research Group
The Remote Control Project examines changes in military engagement, with a focus on remote warfare. This form of intervention takes place behind the scenes or at a distance rather than on a traditional battlefield, often through drone strikes and air strikes from above, with Special Forces, intelligence agencies, private contractors, and military training teams on the ground.
We have a research and policy team focussed on generating a deeper understanding of these issues, acting as an information resource for policy-makers to help build transparent, effective policies that improve prospects for long-term security.
We are hosted by Oxford Research Group (ORG), an independent peace and security think-and-action-tank that promotes dialogue and common security approaches as sustainable alternatives to violent global confrontation.
