Violence and Justice in a Global Age
A philosophical response to 9/11

David Held is Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics. A Habermas scholar, Held has written a response to the 911 events which is available at, in which he makes specific recommendations for how to address terrorism within the context of law.

He has also written a second article with Mary Kaldor called New War, New Justice in which they say: "The only possible alternative approach is one which counters the strategy of ‘fear and hate’ with one of winning hearts and minds. What is needed is a movement for global, not American, justice and legitimacy, aimed at establishing the rule of law in place of war and at fostering understanding between communities in place of terror."
