Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The following project comes under the topic of just wars and governmental decision making. It seeks to look at the decision making process undergone by the Bush Administration prior to the 2003 invasion of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq by the United States of America. This is done through the use of decision making theory and provides answers as to why the USA made the decision to instigate the war. Using this information in combination with other just war theoretical perspectives and various other literature the situation is assessed in terms of whether or not the war can be classified as a just war and the extent to which this is the case.
