Global Seminar on Military Justice Reform

Military justice continues to face dramatic challenges. There are topical national controversies such as, in the United States, those arising from the treatment of sexual assault and battle-field crime. And there are rising expectations around the world for due process and the rule of law in the administration of justice by military courts. Because military justice systems regularly confront comparable issues, valuable insight into the goals, trajectory and tempo of law reform may be gained by discussion across national lines. What are the main issues and best strategies – legislative, litigative, “the court of public opinion” – for achieving reform? As in 2013, the seminar will not be a series of formal speeches, but rather, informed discussion by experts who are personally involved in reform efforts.
