Lily Hamourtziadou, Jonathan Jackson, Ronald Winch

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In this paper we look at 21st century warfare in the context of two great powers: Russia and America. Russian and American invasions and subsequent wars are evaluated in terms of why and how they are fought, legal and moral considerations, impact, outcomes and consequences. The paper examines similarities and differences in strategy and methods, expanding on the increasingly popular remote warfare. Finally, we assess the decisive role of science and technology in war, raising questions about the future of AI warfare.
