Jus Post Bellum

Towards a Theory of Just Cyberwar

ABSTRACT

The text applies just war theory to cyberwar from a philosophical perspective. After defining the concept of cyberwar it discusses the ethical criteria of the traditional jus ad bellum and jus in bello, before emphasizing the need for a Kantian jus post bellum. The aim is to reach several ethical norms which may ultimately lead to new international legal norms (an international treaty inspired by jus post bellum) or allow to assess the adaptation of existing legal norms.
