The group was interested to hear the unique insights into the RAF Reaper Force that emerged from Peter’s research. The event was an opportunity to improve wider understanding of the human dimension of remote air warfare in the 21st century as Parliamentarians shape the UK’s drone policies for the future.

Dr Lee said: “The APPG was impressively well informed and eager to learn more about the UK’s use of drones. My host, Baroness Stern, and the APPG Chair, Adam Holloway MP, were particularly insightful in their questioning and understanding, and very supportive of this research.”
