Abstract: In recent years, the complex relationship between armed conflict and human rights has become even more contentious due to the emergence of new obstacles. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sometimes known as 'drones', as well as ongoing research and development in this area, have considerably impacted the nature of modern conflict, particularly about the former element. Drones are frequently referred to as 'unmanned aircraft systems'. Drones have fundamentally altered the nature of conflict, quickly becoming one of the most popular, highly sought-after, and successful forms of new military technology in recent human history. This is because drones can complete various tasks without human assistance. It is now possible to adopt new sorts of remedies to the problem of conflicts related to sexual violence (CRSV), and each of these solutions carries with it the likelihood that there will be both benefits and drawbacks associated with its implementation. It is designed to provide a conceptual starting point for additional investigation at some point in the future. This study's objective is to determine the extent to which the age of digital technology and the international legal framework can contribute to reducing the number of crimes that occur during war.
