Law and Justice Forums


In light of the number of revolutions and civil wars that have swept the Arab world since the end of 2010, it has been observed that we may be entering “a new Age of Revolution”. However, the phenomenon of revolution has received surprisingly little attention in recent debates. We currently lack an account of the conditions under which it is permissible to resort to war in order to overthrow profoundly unjust regimes, and we lack an account of the moral constraints that exist on such attempts. Similar problems arise when we consider the question of how states are permitted to respond to insurgencies whose aim is to overthrow existing regimes. To address these questions the YTL Centre for Politics Philosophy and Law will bring together some of the theorists working at the forefront of these debates.
