Trinaesta ILECS konferencija

Trinaesta ILECS konferencija (International Law and Ethics Conference Series) posveéna je koncepciji pobede u ratu. Značenje, vrednost i normativni status pobede u ratu naizgled su jasno definisani pojmovi. Koncepcija ,,predvidivog uspeha’’ ili mogućnosti pobede čine sastavni deo teorije pravednog rata (Just War Theory). Međutim, u okviru teorije pravednog rata javlja se niz drugih pitanja vezanih za koncepciju pobede – kada je pobeda zaslužena i kakav je teorijski status činjenice da neko zaslužuje (ili ne zaslužuje) da pobedi? Kakva je veza između činjenice da neko zaslužuje da pobedi i koncepcije odbrane u ratu? U tesnoj vezi sa ovim pitanjem nalaze se problemi ispravnih ili ,,pravednih’’ uslova kapitulacije  i uloge kapitulacije u utvrđivanju činjenice pobede u ratu kao institucionalne i društvene činjenice: možemo li govoriti o pobedi bez (zvanične, ili barem na neki način priznate) kapitulacije? Konačno, da li je kapitulacija poslednje pribežište odbrane u ratu?

Normativni par pobede i poraza može se shvatiti kao utemeljujuće pravilo institucije rata, što otvara pitanje legitimnosti započinjanja rata: da li je i za otpočinjanje rata potreban jednako legitiman uslov kao za njegovo okončanje?

Da li je pobeda možda postala suvišna, na primer zbog postojanja određenog (prikrivenog ili otvorenog) mehanizma kontrole sveta unutar koga se sve može unapred odrediti? Šta bi, recimo, značilo pobediti u ratu u Afganistanu ili Iraku, ili ,,pobediti u ratu protiv terorizma’’? Možemo li zamisliti određeno stanje toliko izražene legitimne nejednakosti koje bi fenomen rata, pa samim tim i pobede, učinilo ,,suvišnim’’?

Jezik konferencije je engleski.
