by Michael O. Garvey

The University of Notre Dame’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies has launched a new Web page entitled “Alternatives to War with Iraq: Kroc Institute Resources on Policy and Ethics.”p. “Our new Web site is designed to provide thoughtful alternatives to a U.S. attack,” said R. Scott Appleby, John M. Regan, Jr. Director of the Kroc Institute. “Drawing on the work of Kroc Institute faculty and colleagues in the peace studies community, we built the site in an effort to serve growing public opinion, shared by many in higher education, that the conditions placed by just war theory on the use of deadly force?in particular, that the resort to violence be the last resort?have not been satisfied.”p.
