This course provides a survey of basic principles in the law and ethics of armed conflict. We will read both materials in the history of just war thought and humanitarian protection, as well as dealing with contemporary conflicts and the changing nature of warfare. The course will also involve a number of "simulations," in which students role-play different policy and legal positions. Some background in moral or political philosophy, or international law, is helpful but not required.

This course may satisfy the Writing Requirement.
