Moving Towards Jus Post Bellum: An Analysis of Three Contemparory Writers Through a Kantian Lens

Sara Kourtsounis, Salve Regina University

Abstract

This dissertation focuses on an analysis of the works of James Turner Johnson, Jean Bethke Elsthain, and Eric Patterson through a Kantian lens to determine a set of normative guidelines for jus post bellum. The guidelines for jus post bellum were garnered from this analysis as well as other just war scholars including Brian Orend and Michael Walzer. Kant offers a deontological-based look at jus post bellum offering a guide to twenty-first century challenges facing the international community. The guidelines are presented as well as recommendations for areas outside the scope of this dissertation that are pertinent to jus post bellum and the just war tradition and to make the guidelines manageable and effective.
