Defense, Public Security and Democracy

This Section was created at LASA2000 in Miami. Its goals are to coordinate and facilitate contact among members of LASA who are interested in all aspects of defense policy, civil-military relations and security issues in general. To reach our goal of creating this intellectual community we are creating an interactive web site to promote discussion, stimulate specialized meeting within and parallel to LASA, and secure funds to promote greater integration among US and Latin American scholars.
