Jus Post Bellum and the Justice of Peace

Thursday 29 September 2016 - Friday 30 September 2016
Peace Palace

THE JUS POST BELLUM PROJECT, an NWO-funded Vidi project of the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, is hosting its final project conference on ‘Jus Post Bellum and the Justice of Peace’ on 29-30 September 2016 in The Hague.

Jus post bellum as a concept has gained significant attention in past decades. Scholars have identified certain normative principles underlying transitions from conflict to peace, such as retribution, reconciliation, restitution, reconstruction and proportionality. However, few attempts have been made to clarify how such principles relate to concrete dilemmas in transitions from conflict to peace, and what guidance the law provides. Traditionally, jus post bellum has been more concerned with the justice of war, rather than the justice of peace. It has been focused on states, rather than non-state actors. In our final conference on "Jus Post Bellum and the Justice of Peace", we will explore to what extent international law contains norms and principles of just and sustainable peace in general, and in specific areas.

The detailed conference schedule can be found in the the Conference Programme.
