MANCEPT ONE-DAY WORKSHOP “ETHICS OF THE ALTERNATIVES TO WAR”

Politics, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester

Friday, 27 March 2015

 

Location: Boardroom, Second Floor, Arthur Lewis Building (building no. 36 here), University of Manchester

Although there has been much written on the ethics of war by just war theorists, much less attention has been to the ethics of the alternatives to war (or ‘soft war’), including economic sanctions, diplomacy, nonviolent resistance, cyber war, propaganda, and ‘lawfare’. This workshop brings together some leading just war theorists and political philosophers to consider both specific alternatives and the alternatives as a whole.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Ariel Colonomas, Sciences Po.
  • Cheyney Ryan, University of Oregon
  • Christopher Finlay, University of Birmingham
  • Elizabeth Ellis, University of Leeds
  • Jessica Wolfendale, West Virginia University
  • Michael Gross University of Haifa
  • Sebastian Kaempf, University of Queensland
  • Tamar Meisels, Tel Aviv University
  • Valerie Morkevicius, Colgate University
