In this talk, I would like to discuss gravitational waves in gravitational effective field theories. In particular, I will focus on gravitational waves propagating on a black hole background, and will show that the coefficients of the higher-dimension operators in the EFT can be constrained by causality considerations. I will also comment on observability of these higher-dimension operators in gravitational wave detections.
