Justifier la guerre ?
De l'humanitaire au contre-terrorisme (2e édition actualisée et augmentée)
From Humanitarian Aid to Counter-Terrorism
Well-respected international authors from a variety of different fields analyse the moral arguments for turning to violence under the prism of the 'just war' doctrine and its possible application to humanitarian interventions and peace-building. They have in turn addressed the issue of counter-terrorism and its relationship to war on a historical and operational level, before going on to debate the problem of international legitimacy and the norms involved therein.
This edition uses the invaluable lessons regarding Iraq and Afghanistan. This work also draws on comparison between interventions in Kosovo and Libya and contains a postface by Pierre Hassner which emphasises the strategic, political and moral ambiguities that characterise current global actions, institutions and developments.
