T hey are a cost-effective means of monitoring and surveillance. Unmanned dro nes are also increasingly used by civil society as they are affordable, req uire little knowledge to operate and the low probability of causing physica l harm to humans (Floreano, Wood 2015). Drones create knowledge by taking aerial photographs of landscapes, events and places that are not easily cap tured in other ways. This panel invites contributors to address the opportu nities and obstacles that drones present in Southeast Asia. Panellists are invited to reflect on the spaces and opportunities in which drones are used , how and why their use is regulated differently in various Southeast Asian countries, and what the political agendas are. In Thailand, for example, v ideographers have used drones to film violence against protesters (Viernes 2020). How are drones used in protest movements and state control? To what extent are they used in political campaigns? \n\nAnother area of interest i s how drones are used in environmental conservation, such as ecosystem moni toring, wildlife research and management and ecotourism (López, Pázmány 201 9). A case in point is Greenpeace using 300 drones to prompt action on cons erving the environment in one of their videos. How are drones used for cons ervational purposes by conservationists in Southeast Asia? Drones are also employed in artwork and in film. Videographers have used them to capture be autiful images of cities or special places, they are used in films or are p art of art installations that are uploaded and made available on public pla tforms such as YouTube. What aesthetic components of drone images can be id entified? How are they used alongside other modes of artistic expression?
