Nigel Biggar’s provocative new book argues a just war position supporting aggressive war in punishment of grave injustice, even if it may be in transgression of positive international law. He will be articulating his view initially in debate with Christian ethicist Esther Reed and international lawyer Dapo Akande, and then in response to questions from the floor.
