The Politics of Justice and Justice Reform in Latin America: The Peruvian Case in Comparative Perspective

Synopsis

This book surveys the traditional roles of Latin American judicial & justice systems & the origins, objectives, & outcomes of contemporary efforts to reform them. It views justice reform as both a technical & political process, demonstrating how evolving understandings in both areas have engendered conflicts over the limits & direction of future change. Drawing on a detailed examination of the Peruvian experience, short case studies on Colombia, Costa Rica, & El Salvador, & other regional examples, Linn Hammergren tracks the evolution of reform policy & politics from a purely sectoral issue to an emerging focus on their relationship to the political foundations, structure, & operations of the modern state.
