Institutionalizing the Just War

Allen Buchanan

  • Offers a radical departure from traditional and contemporary just war theorizing
  • Argues that a systematic account of the morality of war-making must take into account both existing institutions that affect decisions to go to war and the potential for institutional innovation
  • Proposes an institutional approach that allows for the development of a more comprehensive and practical moral theory of war-making
