Jus Post Bellum, Proportionality, and Compensation

Show Summary Details


This chapter identifies some requirements of justice after war suggested by Brian Orend. It studies Orend's claim that the ability to satisfy jus post bello is a precondition for the justice of starting a war. It then takes a look at several recommendations that are made for justice after war, which are mostly concerned with the victors' duties post bellum. This chapter also checks whether focusing on jus post bellum may make it easier to justify beginning a war and doing things in war.

Keywords: justice after war; Brian Orend; jus post bellum; post-bellum duties
