`Just war‘ is a disputed concept ever since its integration
into Christian Ethics. The Roman Catholic Church has used
the tradition of `just war‘ for ages. It changed
substantially since World War II and the Second Vatican
Council. Also Pope Francis reassesses the use of force in
international conflict. This book provides an indepth
insight in this ongoing reassessment of `just war‘ as part
of Catholic Social Teaching. It does defend nor attack this
tradition, but it provides a conceptual and analytical
framework to understand both this tradition and the reasons
for its reassesment.

Prof. dr. A.H.M. (Fred) van Iersel holds the
Chair for Religion and Ethics in the Context of the Armed
Forces at Tilburg School of Catholic Theology.
