Description: States fight wars in order to define the peace. The structure of the international order is fundamentally a conception of justice, with rules dictating who wins and who loses in certain situations. Each and every nation has ideas of what constitutes legitimate and appropriate acts of justice – its vision of the good. Through manipulating physical domination and changes in perceptions of legitimacy, states seek to transform the world order into their vision of the good. As a result, international politics is a struggle for justice.
