The global targeted killings bandwagon: who’s next after France?

Abstract : Targeted killing – the killing of specific individuals usually performed by drones – is a globally expanding practice.
It blends police objectives with military operations. Targets are considered to be enemy combatants. But if they were to be apprehended in the country where they plan to perpetrate their attack they would not be killed, they would be arrested and put on trial.
Targeted killings are a both a domestic issue and an international one and they combine resources gathered from intelligence means and military power. They are one of the constitutive elements of the preventive use of force framework that emerged in the early 2000s.
