(p.173) Epilogue
Just War Reconsidered

James M. Dubik

University Press of Kentucky

The framework presented in Just War Reconsidered is not one that will identify the right war-waging course of action to take. Rather, using the framework merely increases the probability of right conduct in waging war just as jus in bello’s war-fighting principles do not guarantee but only increase the likelihood of right conduct on the battlefield. The framework is also useful in explaining, justifying, or judging war-waging behaviors and decisions—again, just as do jus in bello’s war-fighting principles. Therein lies Just War Reconsidered’s contribution to just war theory: providing not a final answer but a first step toward a more complete understanding of jus in bello.

Keywords:   jus in bello, waging war, just war theory, war fighting
