The Law and Ethics of War's Ending

Project description

Towards a moral and legal theory of ending asymmetric conflicts

The Just War theory is used by some today as a guide as to whether a war can be justified, and if it is, how it should be waged. The theory, however, gives very little attention to asymmetric conflicts, the most prevalent form of war, such as between states and non-state actors. This includes how and when this type of conflict should end. Addressing this, the EU-funded LEWE project aims to develop a moral and legal framework within just war theory for ending wars, with a focus on asymmetric conflicts.
