This article systematizes the reasons that demand EU action on the issue of armed drones. It argues that a clear positioning of Brussels is required due to consistency with former practices in similar events and fundamental vectors of EU foreign and security policy, as well as legal and strategic demands. The current absence of a shared position is explained by a myriad of factors that need to be taken into account when addressing the possible paths for it to materialize. After revisiting the context in which the debate occurs, the article provides concrete recommendations on how the EU should position itself in the international debate on the regulation of armed drones.
