This lecture is part of the Institute for Global Security Law and Policy’s Official Corruption and National Security Lecture Series. Professor Beer will discuss the traditional “just war” doctrine, which sets out a range of criteria that ought to be fully satisfied if war is to be morally justified: the jus ad bellum ("the right to fight") and the jus in bello ("how to fight right"). The latter requires discrimination between combatants and noncombatants, and proportionality – evaluating military advantage vs. unreasonable damage to the innocent, although neither end result can be precisely predicted. In the current reality of armed conflict, a new paradigm is needed – one that is informed by both traditional legal and moral concepts.
