The Ethical Justifications of Armed Intervention
MetadataShow full item record
The use of force as a means to achieve the end of justice is an intricate, multi-faceted relationship. This paper examines one form which force intertwined with justice assumes: the ethics of military intervention. Here, moral considerations are divorced from all others (i.e. legal, prudential) in order to give them full attention. In balancing purely ethical justifications for intervention against countervailing ones, it is hoped that moral principles will attain their true weight and show the force of their argument which should be heeded in any policy decision.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
