The use of force in international law

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


It is uncontroversial that the international law governing the use of force (jus ad bellum), forms a cornerstone of the international system, and its legal order. The question of the right to resort to war, and the use of force, have been a constant feature of the condition of people, states, and international society. It is certainly a depressing reality that despite efforts to outlaw, abolish, and regulate the use of force in the relations of states, we are apparently little closer to achieving that goal.
