The paper carries out an ethical analysis of the political mechanisms of just restoration after war conflicts’ ending. The basis of analyses is the Just War Theory’s principles, and its result is the general parameters special, jus post bellum theory. Postwar justice hasn’t received detailed consideration from ancient and medieval philosophers, but in modern era beginning from Kant has drown many thinkers’ attention. In contemporary post war justice conception key research subject is the moral foundations of the compromise between all conflict parties in order to early violence’s cessation. However, despite growing interest in the issue, a whole range of related questions remains unresolved, e.g. who is responsible for postwar justice restoration? what kind of measures should include the process of return to the world? how to justify these actions in accordance with international law, in particular the UN Charter? Proposed in the article system of measures could be one option to these questions.
