Jus in Bello’s War-Waging Principles

Jus in Bello’s War-Waging Principles

(p.137) 6Jus in Bello’s War-Waging Principles
Just War Reconsidered

James M. Dubik

University Press of Kentucky

The principles of jus in bello’s tactical dimension describe right conduct in the midst of battle; applying them correctly helps ensure that justice is done in fighting a war. The principles of jus in bello’s strategic dimension describe right conduct in the waging of war; applying them correctly helps ensure that justice is done in waging a war. In the end, jus in bello’s war-waging principles leave senior political and military leaders in a position akin to soldiers and military leaders on the battlefield. Like the jus in bello war-fighting principles of Walzer’s war convention, the war-waging principles are designed to balance protection of individual and communal life with the legitimate conduct of war. At the tactical level, this balance occurs between winning and fighting well.
