On September 25, the Global Justice Clinic and Stanford Law School’s International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic published the report “Living Under Drones”.  The report “Living Under Drones,” describes the conditions of daily life in communities in northwest Pakistan where drones hover 24 hours a day, striking homes, vehicles, and public spaces without warning.
