How to End a War: Peace, Justice, and Repair
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles which officially ended World War One. The treaty is infamous for failing to resolve the conflict and setting the stage for World War Two. As the United States struggles to find resolutions to its two longest wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we will gather to examine the theme "How to End a War: Peace, Justice, and Repair". This theme incorporates the issues of jus post bellum: justice in settlements, punishments, and reparations. However, the theme is broader than typical jus post bellum discussions, involving general social and political issues including reconciliation, forgiveness, tolerance, memorialization, moral injury and repair.
West Point's Ethics of War and Peace Conference aims to bring together civilian scholars, military professionals, cadets, and civilian undergraduates to examine issues of urgent public concern. The conference combines a professional conference showcasing the work of invited experts with an undergraduate conference with presenters chosen from an open call for papers.
