For violence arising within political conflict and being dealt with in political and legal ways, the
more familiar approaches often remain appropriate
The ethics of care especially values caring relations between persons

care

Violence has played an overwhelming role in establishing the boundaries and memberships of

fellow human beings to actually respect their rights and take appropriate account of their

international law is the best available source of such norms

with which they identify by ridding their lands of foreign military forces
