A number of commentators assert that the military response to the terrorist at rocities of 11 September 2001 - encompassing attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, and commonly referred to as the 'war on terror' - has significantly impacted u pon the international law regulating resort to armed force by states (jus ad b ellum), loosening the constraints on self-defence. Some even suggest that the very future of the United Nations, in particular the Security Council and its collective security system, is at risk - at least in its current form. This bo ok does not address the question of the future of the United Nations,an issue probably best left to scholars of international relations. Instead, it seeks t o place the 'war on terror' within the context of international law, assessing how, or whether, it can be accommodated within the existing legal framework l imiting the use of force. Through an examination of the lawfulness (or otherwi se) of both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, including the legal justifications advanced by those states involved and the reaction of the international community, and involving a detailed discussion of the most important developments (i.e. the permissibility of self-defence against non-st ate, terrorist, actors and the 'Bush doctrine' of pre-emptive self-defence aga inst terrorists as proclaimed in the 2001 US National Security Strategy) the b ook determines whether, and to what extent, the right to use force - or the ac ceptability of such military action - is currently undergoing a radical transf ormation. By concentrating solely on the impact that military action against A fghanistan and Iraq has had on the jus ad bellum, this book represents a disti nctive and original contribution to the academic literature.
