This book asks whether just war theory and its rules for determining when war is justified remains adequate to the challenges posed by contemporary developments. Some argue that the nature of contemporary war makes these rules obsolete.

By contrast, a recent attempt has been made to delineate a “classic” just war
theory that stands over against both pacifism and “contemporaryjust war theory.
3 The distinctive features of the “classic” theory – its conception of justified
violence as punitive or corrective in nature and its comparatively permissive
stance regarding preventive war – lent themselves to arguments on behalf of a
vigorous policy of humanitarian intervention, an aggressive response to the
terrorism of 9/11, and ...

Contemporary. Just. War. Thinkers. Although the just war tradition was absorbed
during the earlymodern period of European history into the emerging institutions
and practices of international law, the process of absorption was far from perfect.
Not only were alien influences often in play, such as the philosophical idealism of
Immanuel Kant discussed in the previous chapter, but also, even where
international law stayed true to just war ideas, it necessarily failed to capture the
breadth ...

Just War and Terrorism (2005), 47) The primary purpose of Part II of this book has
been to question claims of continuity, coherence and superiority sometimes
made on behalf of the justwar tradition and, more specifically, to expose the
trajectory of its modern revival from the Romantic aftermath of the French
Revolution through to recent decades, and locate this within twentieth-century US
politics and public debate. Revivals of religion, nationalism and orientalism since
the 1980s in ...

This realization raises a host of questions: Is war ever justified? If so, for what
purposes? Who has the authority to decide to wage war? What is acceptable war
conduct? Just-war theorists have considered such questions, and reflective
citizens should do likewise. The first part of this book summarily explains the
basic principles of just-war theory in a modern context. I particularly emphasize
the importance of the United Nations' role in contemporary just-war theory. The
second part of ...

The most obvious sources are, of course, the laws of war that have developed in
international law. But because the international laws of war are not simply
synonymous with just war and because there is no single, setinstone account of
just war, the sources for Just War (PPC) can be quite diverse, drawing from the
length of the tradition outlined in the previous chapters as well as leaning heavily
on prominent contemporary just war theorists. For example, many people take
the work of ...

The permissive ad bellum and in bello implications of the gendered immunity
principle serve to legitimate gendered war making and incentivize gendered
intentional civilian victimization. If that is the case (and fundamental to
contemporary Just War performances), then the Just War tradition itself is also a
net negative until it is separated from the combatant/civilian dichotomy. This
chapter suggests a rough outline of “Just War without civilians,” based on
relationships, experience, and ...
