Jus Contra Bellum
Chapter 13: Peaceful change
The problem of peaceful change problem is crucial for international peace and has to be handled with great care. At stake here is the elimination of festering issues, of situations which, if they are allowed to persist, end up by increasing international tension. Peaceful change requires an international body with the role of recommending, or even deciding on, the necessary modifications to the legal and political regimes established in the past under different political and environmental circumstances. This chapter looks at the problem of peaceful change from the perspectives of stability versus adaptation, Article 19 of the League of Nations Covenant, and Article 14 of the United Nations Charter.
