U.S. Military and Human Rights Promotion

Opis:

Many years before the U.S. military had to deal with the repercussions of abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, the U.S. armed forces were vigorously engaged in helping their Latin American counterparts to recognize the strategic imperatives of respecting human rights on the battlefield. Before Iraqi accusations of massacre at Haditha forced the U.S. military to again scramble to defend its honor and reputation, U.S. forces in Latin America were more than a decade into repairing their image after taking the blame for numerous human rights crises. Indeed, U.S. military relations with Latin America are at the center of numerous academic and policy debates, particularly regarding U.S. military assistance and its impact on human rights and broader democratic development. Until now, however, no book has focused on determining whether the U.S. military could serve as a primary source of human rights promotion. Meanwhile, U.S. military human rights promotion efforts in Latin America have become central to the Department of Defense Strategic Engagement Plan since the end of the Cold War. The significant role of the U.S. military in promoting human rights around Latin America is unmatched by U. S. military efforts anywhere in the world. This book documents an approach to human rights that could become a model for Department of Defense strategy and behavior around the world. Perhaps the most important finding of this book is that the true heroes on the human rights front are not civilians, but U.S. military officials, a conclusion that is too often ignored by activists, missed by scholars, and would have been unthinkable only a decade ago. "Sceptical leftists will beg to differ but the author deserves credit for opening up far more avenues of debate than his opponents will be able to close down." - Journal of American Studies "Laurienti (a Latin America analyst for the US government) seeks to analyze whether human rights promotion in military assistance and training has had a positive effect in the cases of Bolivia, Colombia, and Venezuela. He finds that human rights promotion, which he argues remains a resilient commitment of US military officials in Latin America, does have a positive impact, but that the extent of such impact is contingent on each country`s level of democratic civil-military development." - Reference and Research Book News "This important book claims that the US military has played a significant, positive role in promoting human rights in Latin America through military assistance. While the thesis may seem counterintuitive in light of past US military involvement in human rights abuses in Latin America and similar, more recent abuses in Iraq, the book is tightly argued and well documented. Chapters 1 and 2 place the issue in historical and contemporary contexts. The next three chapters present three key case studies (Bolivia, Colombia, and Venezuela) of human rights promotion through US military assistance. The case studies are quite brief, but convincing. Chapter 6 relates the case studies and the book`s thesis to the challenge of military human rights promotion in the counterterrorism age; a concluding chapter follows. The book is sufficiently compelling to require a rethinking of the role of the US military in human rights promotion in this hemisphere by all concerned, including practitioners in the government as well as private sector human rights groups. Clear organization and readability make the book accessible for undergraduates as well as graduate students and professionals. Highly recommended. All levels." - Choice "Using case studies of Bolivia, Colombia, and Venezuela as a base for analysis, Laurienti shows that American consistency in promoting human rights through military connections has developed as a key to long-term counterterrorist policies, has facilitated democratic development generally, and has become central to the U.S. Strategic Engagement Plan." - MultiCultural Review
