Just War Theory Research Starter
Just war theory is a doctrine that identifies ethical criteria for one nation to declare war on another. With roots in the Catholic tradition, just war theory has shifted over the centuries from a primarily religious issue, to one of both theological and secular political concern. More recently, the relevance of the theory has been questioned in light of drastic changes in the nature of warfare itself.
