(p.188) Conclusion
Asymmetric Killing

Neil C. Renic

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter revisits the main contentions of the book. This will commence with an overview of the significance and implications of the moral challenge of radical asymmetry. The broader relevance of these findings for ongoing debates within the Just War Tradition and laws of war will then be detailed. This will include analysis of the likely impact of the widening gap between what is morally justifiable on the battlefield and what is the legally permissible. The chapter will conclude by assessing how the challenge of radically asymmetric violence is most likely to develop from this point onwards, as the technology that enables it proliferates globally.

Keywords:   risk, reciprocal risk, radical asymmetry, sniping, aerial bombing, UAVs, drones, Just War Tradition, laws of war, warrior ethos
