A Messy Moral Landscape
This chapter introduces the problem of complicity through a conversation between an academic philosopher and practitioner of emergency medicine in conflict zones. It foreshadows our conclusions that complicity involves making a causal contribution to the wrongdoing of others, knowingly but not necessarily sharing the purposes of the wrongdoers. It illustrates how our analysis might provide a better account of the plight of humanitarian actors in conflict situations. It highlights the importance of adapting moral methodology to the complexities of the radically non-ideal world.
