‘A Revolution in Just War Theory? Expanding the Laws and Ethics of War to Cover Revolutionary Conflict’ (PhD in Philosophy, 2018).

Can just war theory be extended to cover revolutionary conflict and other forms of intrastate war? In short, it can be. Yet how this might be achieved is contingent on one’s commitment to particular groupings of the different methodological, legal and normative positions that together constitute just war theory. The thesis examines how each particular grouping fares toward this end.
