The drone age, how drone technology will change war and peace, Michael J. Boyle

Summary
In this text, Michael J. Boyle examines how the spread of drones worldwide will change the patterns of war and peace in the decades ahead. He argues that drones are subtly altering the decision-making and risk calculus of its users and producing new ways in which states and non-state actors alike can compete for power and influence. In this way, they are beginning to change the dynamics of wars, humanitarian crises and peacekeeping missions and to newly empower actors as varied as militaries, private companies, and terrorist groups
