Today's conventional wisdom is that the best we've got when it comes to preventing and stopping war is the Just War Tradition and its associated framework of international law and institutions. Yet these conventional tools keep proving insufficient. In this lecture, 3 factors which might explain these insufficiencies and point beyond our current set up will be explored: the widely-shared yet increasingly questionable assumption that violence can be an effective instrument to achieve political ends; the deep institutional dynamics which incentivise a chronic slide towards systematic militarism; and very structural foundation of our international order.

Dr Alexandre Christoyannopoulis is Reader in Politics and International Relations at Loughborough University.
