In view of the more recent wave of academic literature on justice in the wake of armed conflict, or jus post bellum, it is an appropriate moment to examine what has been put forward and to evaluate where this concept stands for the global community today. Each of the three books discussed here, in their own distinctive way, provides us with fresh analysis of the principles that should govern post-war practices, and offer stimulating views on the problem of moving from a position of war to a position of peace and reconciliation. They also question the very possibility of achieving justice and restoring peace at the same time.
