Agenda Item I : Examining the States’ Rights to Extradition


Extradition is an act in which one jurisdiction transfers to their law enforcement a person accused or convicted of committing a crime in another jurisdiction. It is a collaborative system of law enforcement between the two jurisdictions which relies on the relationships between them. In addition to the legal aspects of the process,extradition also requires the physical transfer of custody of the extradited person to the applicant jurisdiction's legal authority.

Usually one sovereign jurisdiction makes a formal request to another sovereign jurisdiction through the extradition process. If the refugee is located within the jurisdiction of the requested State, the requested State may detain the refugee and send him or her to the extradition process.


Agenda Item II: Creating a Legal Framework on the Use of Automated Weapon Systems


Lethal autonomous weapons (LAWs) are a type of autonomous military robot that can scan and engage targets independently on the basis of programmed restrictions and descriptions. LAW is also referred to as lethal autonomous weapons (LAWS), lethal autonomous robots (LAR), robotic weapons, or killer robots. LAWs can operate in the air, on land, under water, or in space. The independence in current systems as of 2018 is limited in the sense that a person gives the final order to strike-although some "defensive" systems have exceptions.
