Making War and Its Continuation Unjust

Show Summary Details


This chapter takes a look at the connection between the ideas of a state of affairs that remains as a justified peace—despite involving injustices—and of a just cause in just war theory. It studies the relationship between the state of affairs that should remain unchanged by war and the state of affairs that, if it is achieved, must end war. This chapter also discusses Avishai Margalit's work.

Keywords: state of affairs; justified peace; injustices; just cause; just war theory; Avishai Margalit
