Armed forces, power, and courts

Profs. Brett J. Kyle (University of Nebraska--Omaha) and Andrew G. Reiter (Mount Holyoke) have written this important and timely essay on the militarization of justice in Latin America. They observe: "Given how repressive military courts were and how long and difficult it was for civilian reformers to finally rein them in, the re-empowerment of these courts is a frightening development. It has the potential to roll back decades of human rights law and judicial reform." A highly recommended read.
