The Idea of Non-Discriminating War and Japan

Abstract :

It is a well-known formulation in most Japanese international law textbooks that two major changes in the theoretical status of war took place. The first change was from the “just war (bellum justum)” theory in the Middle Ages and in Early Modern Times to the so-called idea of “non-discriminating war” in the latter half of the 18th century or early 19th century. The second change was a shift after WWI from the idea of “non-discriminating war” to the so-called “outlawry of war”, or restriction or prohibition of war. This notion was codified in a different way by the Covenant of the League of Nations, the Briand-Kellogg Pact, and the Charter of the United Nations.
