Jus ad bellum and jus in bello are established concepts in contemporary international law. This book is the first work to treat the origins, contents and contemporary challenges of jus post bellum. It offers new analysis and fresh thinking on one of the greatest challenges of warfare and armed force: the management and restoration of peace after conflict. Fundamental issues, such as the extraterritorial application of human rights obligations, the accountability of occupying powers and international organizations and approaches towards justice and reconciliation, are at the heart of contemporary debate. New concepts, such as the notion of responsibility to protect are gradually emerging. This book addresses these issues from a novel perspective. It identifies legal gaps and policy challenges and inquires to what extent they may be addressed under a common normative umbrella: Jus Post Bellum. The individual contributions offer guidance on shortcomings, directions and possible avenues of reform. In this way, the authors - from various disciplines, such as philosophy, legal history, political science and international law - contribute to the emerging scholarship in this field. Carsten Stahn is a Reader in Public International Law and International Criminal Justice, at the Swansea University School of Law, UK. Jann K. Kleffner is Assistant Professor at the Amsterdam University Center of International Law, The Netherlands, and the Managing Editor of the Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law.
