Austrian parliament considered and adopted a motion on the topic of lethal autonomous weapons. The motion requested the Austrian federal government continue multilateral engagement, advocate for a ban of autonomous weapon systems in international law and consistently drive forward an international process, and advocate on the European and international level for strengthening initiatives to effectively counter challenges that artificial intelligence poses to human rights, rule of law, and democracy, particularly in areas of peacekeeping and disarmament.
