    Week 3. Authoritarianism: Civil – military relations in comparative perspective (28 items)

    The military has played a pivotal role in the politics of many Latin American countries, whether in the form of junta governments or providing support to personalised dictators. This lecture offers a broad overview of the factors that facilitated the military regimes that characterised the region until the late-1970s/early-1980s, before discussing how the role of the military has changed following political transition. This provides an important historical backdrop to the region, most especially the form and tone of transitions to democracy.

    The session will focus on the Southern Cone countries of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay. In addition to the essential reading, you should choose two of these countries and read around the role of the military in each one.

    Question for discussion: What were the causes of democratic breakdown? In what ways has the role of the military evolved following political transitions?
