    Despite a significant effort to reduce civilian casualties, a large number of civilians have been killed and injured by the military forces of the Western powers undertaking military operations in remote regions. However, there is no requirement in the just war tradition (JWT) and international humanitarian law (IHL) to provide reparation for the victims of unintended and proportional attacks. This article seeks to establish moral grounds for responsibility to provide reparation for “collateral damage” by focusing on the distinct characteristics of (...)

  4. Shunzo Majima (2012). Just Torture? Journal of Military Ethics 11 (2):136-148.
    Abstract The purpose of this paper is to develop and analyse a possible theory of ?just torture?, by reference to the framework of just war theory, which proposes moral criticism of war, in order that we can critically consider the morality or otherwise of torture, including that undertaken for interrogation purposes.

  5. Shunzo Majima, Ethics of Civilian Protection.
    In this thesis, I discuss the ethics of civilian protection in armed conflict from the perspective of applied ethics.

Moreover, I will further defend my argument for the protection of civilians in armed conflict by (...)

  8. Shunzo Majima (2009). Forgotten Victims of Military Humanitarian Intervention: A Case for the Principle of Reparation? Philosophia 37 (2):203-209.
    The purpose of this article is briefly to present a case for the principle of reparation as a new jus in bello principle for just humanitarian intervention. The article is divided into three sections. In “Restorative Justice and Civilian Protection”, I investigate the idea of restorative justice in order to consider whether or not it can complement the shortcomings of the just war tradition in civilian protection. In “The Legal Framework on Reparation: Its Scope and Limitations”, I examine the scope (...)
