Are there moral rules that govern the conduct of war? We have a body of international humanitarian law concerning armed conflict, such as the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute (which includes war crimes and the crime of aggression). But what is the moral justification of the existence those laws – if there is any at all? Join Dr Antony Lamb to explore an answer to this question, grounded in the just war tradition. Antony’s book on this topic is available from Routledge.

This Cafe is on Tuesday 19 September, in the Cafe Bar at the Gate from 8.00 pm.
