(p.389) 7 Political Responsibility
Accountability for Killing

Neta C. Crawford

Oxford University Press

Focuses on the role of civilian political institutions’ oversight of the military with respect to protecting non-combatants. Today the responsibility for the conduct of war is still an area of contention between civilian institutions and the military. Although civilian leaders in the executive branch can and often do exercise oversight, the other branches, namely Congress and the Judiciary have taken much less interest in civilian protection. The chapter proposes guidelines for the civilian oversight of the military’s preparation for war and its conduct in war.
