Talk: From Sanctions to Nonviolence – Assessing the Alternatives to War

Thursday 24th January 2019
University of Leicester

In this talk, Professor James Pattison, University of Manchester, will consider the ethics of the alternatives to war.

The central aim will be to sketch out a moral map of the main alternatives to war. He will draw on central moral considerations in political philosophy to highlight the issues that the alternatives raise, and to consider if, and how, we can navigate these issues. In doing so, he will argue that the case for war is weaker and the case for many of the alternatives is stronger than commonly thought.
