The Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace (SCEWP) has just launched a new blog.
The Ethical War Blog will publish short and timely opinion articles on war-related topics in the news, written by specialists in the field, in an accessible and digestible format.
The blog launches with five articles, with new content to be added continuously:
• Prof. James Pattison asks whether arming rebels in conflicts such as Syria is preferable to military intervention.
• Prof. Adil Ahmed Haque discusses ISIS, cultural destruction, and international law.
• Prof. Yitzhak Benbaji and Prof. Alexander Yakobsen assess the morality of Hamas’ tactics during Operation Protective Edge
• Dr. Jonathan Peterson asks whether defending cultural objects can justify waging war against ISIS.
• Prof. David Rodin discusses the conflict between the right to free speech and the duty to avoid causing harm in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
