Abstract:
After some historical remarks about former examples of Targeted killing the paper asks about the paradigm in which targeted killing could fit: punishment, police action, war of which the latter one seems to be the most promising. In this context, the problem of Immunity of non-combatants and who is to be counted as such becomes relevant.
