Abstract

[Prevention is a matter of limits, of gauging the difference between the acceptable (or, rather, the not unacceptable) and the unacceptable. Understanding the discrimination to be made here necessitates delving into a more or less distant past and this explains our approach in the preceding chapters. This analysis would be incomplete if it failed to question more precisely the dialectic between the military doctrines of the law and the responses made from outside the state. The horizon of this exercise is a depiction of a “context of justice,” a climate that anticipates and foreshadows the decisions of the present. It is part of the trajectory that leads toward the explanation of the justifications of the post-September 11 conflicts and of those doubtless looming on the horizon.]
