Project in brief

Civilians account for a higher proportion of deaths in war than at
any point in history, killing in violent conflict is increasing, and
a spate of wars in North Africa and the Middle East have left behind
destroyed lives and destroyed states. It is time to ask whether the
idea that war can be a morally just way of protecting civilians
should be rejected. Departing from orthodox philosophical approaches
to the ethics of war, this project takes an applied and
interdisciplinary approach to address the question of whether Just
War Theory should be renounced.
