Nobel Peace Laureate
Jody Williams is a renowned American political activist who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997 for her work toward the banning and clearing of anti-personnel mines. She is known across the world for her efforts to enhance understanding of security and related issues in the world today. She, along with 20 of her fellow Nobel Peace laureates have called for a preemptive ban on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS) — weapons that could operate without human supervision once activated even in matters of killing human beings.
