Military justice update from Singapore

This revealing insight on military justice in Singapore was just published by the Military Justice Project, an initiative by the National University of Singapore (NUS) law faculty's criminal justice club.

The Singapore Armed Forces Act arose from exigency as the young nation resisted foreign intervention, and reflects a strong skepticism of outside meddling. On the other hand, the world tends to look towards Singapore as a model example in areas from diplomacy to economics, so trends in Singapore are worth watching. 

Congratulations to NUS Law's Military Justice Project for keeping us informed. Congratulations too to NUS Law's first-place winning team in the 2019 Nuremberg Moot Court Competition in international criminal law (ICL). The growing field of ICL is closely connected to military justice.
