CHRGJ Sends Statement of Shared Concerns on U.S. Drone Strikes and Targeted Killings to the IACHR
November 6, 2013

In connection with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights hearing on the Use of Drones and its Impact on Human Rights in the Americas on Friday, November 1, 2013, CHRGJ and the Global Justice Clinic in a coalition with the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International, Center for Civilians in Conflict, Center for Constitutional Rights, Human Rights First, Human Rights Watch, and Open Society Foundations submitted for the record a statement of shared concerns regarding U.S. drone strikes and targeted killings that was sent by these groups to President Obama on April 11, 2013.

That statement of concerns urges the United States to take essential steps to: publicly disclose key targeted killing standards and criteria; ensure that U.S. lethal force operations abroad comply with international law; enable meaningful congressional oversight and judicial review; and ensure effective investigations, tracking and response to civilian harm.
