Abstract

Author aims to analyze the existing in bello norms in the context of their compatibility with ecologism. As little attention is paid to ecological considerations in Just War Theory author suggests expanding the existing principle of in bello proportionality with ‘green proportionality’, which would add ecological considerations into the moral calculus. Author provides an ex-post analysis of ‘green (dis)proportionality’ using the example of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, which caused disproportionate ecological consequences while mostly following in-bello requirements. Author concludes that ‘green proportionality’ must be included into Just War Theory in order to reflect global values and prevent desolation of natural environment.
