Institutionalism of Defense in South America
Under the axis of investigation called “Institutionalism of Defense in South America”, the Center has developed six thematic lines. The first of them, the Report on Institutionalism of Defense in South America, has given origin in the subsequent CEED’s Work Plans to the other existing lines. Hereunder is a brief explanation of each one of them.
This first document, which is under permanent updating and enables to know in detail the defense architectures o the States of the region, gave origin, from the analysis and the study of the information contained therein, to a set of sub-lines that are developed as in-depth studies of some of the most important axis of defense jurisdiction at regional level, namely:
a) Report of Institutionalism.
b) A comparative study of the diverse “military justice” Systems and/or “military discipline” of the CDS states.
c) To carry out comparative studies on “Defense Education and Training Systems”, in order to identify the spaces for the homologation of contents in specific areas.
d) To conduct joint studies for the identification of criteria and the determination of the lowest common denominators to achieve a South American military interoperability.
e) To develop a Regional Glossary of Defense terms and concepts.
