Stories we are following

Every so often Global Military Justice Reform highlights some of the major stories we are following. In no particular order, here's a current roster -- subject to change as events unfold:

  • use of military courts to try civilians (Pakistan, Egypt, Thailand, Uganda)
  • UN peacekeeper discipline
  • tension between the Defence Forces and soldiers' union in South Africa
  • constitutional challenge to new Mexican military justice legislation
  • congressional action -- sans any public hearings -- on Obama administration reform proposals (and inaction on Sen. Kerstin Gillibrand's proposal to shift disposition power from commanders to prosecutors independent of the chain of command)
  • pending military justice cases in the Supreme Court of Canada
  • tech and social media and military justice
  • Elor Azaria trial in Israel
What would you add? Please comment (real names only, please).
