This is a difficult question for cosmopolitans, for in so far as settlements generate special rights and duties between their signatories, compliance might stand in the way of fulfilling general obligations to humankind at large. A peace settlement is binding on its parties (or so I argue) if, and only if, it meets the following two conditions: (1) the procedural justice condition, whereby (1a) the agreement is not secured by fraud, deception, or unjustified coercion, and (1b) parties who negotiate the agreement are competent to do so; (2) the substantive justice condition, whereby the agree­ ment’s clauses (2a) are justifiedATC vis-à-vis its parties and (2b) do not prevent the latter from meeting their overriding obligations of justice to outsiders.

But I still think that there are limits to the sacrifices which combatants (and indeed bodyguards) can be reasonably expected to make even in the presence of a prior agreement, and even if they can generally be expected to take higher risks in virtue of such agreement. That said, we must further distinguish the act by which armed forces, whether as a whole or in part, surrender or withdraw from the battlefield, from the act by 6 For the view that extricating oneself from a course of action can be unacceptably costly to third parties, see C.

For example, a practical constraint may lead us to desist from implementing P on the moral grounds that implement­ ing P is morally too costly. In any event, whichever account of feasibility one endorses, it is important to bear in mind the distinction between direct moral con­ straints—of the form, ‘implementing P undermines the value of privacy’ (in Cohen’s equality of welfare example) or ‘implementing P is undemocratic’ (in Miller’s fuel prices example)—and morally inflected costly practical constraints.
