Protecting People - and Losing Just Peace?

Debates on the Responsibility to Protect in the Context of Christian Peace Ethics

Edited by: Ines-Jacqueline Werkner, Dirk Rademacher

Taking up the international ecumenical debate on 'just peace' and the international responsibility to protect, this volume discusses the relation between the two concepts. It examines such questions as: How does responsibility to protect influence the paradigm of just peace? How can the core idea of prevention be implemented in view of real needs to protect? Can criteria be developed to reflect just peace as a model for Christian peace ethics? Can these criteria also include military intervention as a last resort?
