The notion of crime as an illegal act that is punishable by a government authority implies a clear differentiation between right and wrong. Mass incarceration further symbolizes the concept that a physical space drawn in bars and walls can impose a simple order onto a world that defies borders and neat categories. The purpose of punishment is to avenge, to incapacitate, and to deter, but does it work? Is justice served more than it is not? And might the abuses of mass incarceration be inherent to its practice? This series of international films takes a closer look at different interpretations of crime and punishment and what they say about a country’s values, collective identities, and understanding of history.

Armed Forces, the State, and Society in Southeast Asia: Identity, Authority, and Legitimacy
2:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Downtown

CGA Conference on Armed Forces, the State, and Society in Southeast Asia: Identity, Authority, and Legitimacy

Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled.

What is the relationship between the military and political authority? Civil-military relations theory proceeds from a central normative premise: the military must not be involved in politics.  Samuel Huntington, for instance, claims that militaries should be content with having autonomy over their professional affairs in exchange for non-interference in the political realm - a system that legitimizes both bodies. In Southeast Asia today, there exists a range of civil-military relations along a spectrum. Some countries (such as Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines) operate, at least nominally, under a system in which civilian political leadership is firmly and clearly in control. In others, the military operates explicitly (Vietnam and Lao PDR) or implicitly (Cambodia) as a tool of the ruling political party. Indonesia is a former military dictatorship that has reformed its armed forces; Myanmar, operates what might be called a transitional model.  Thailand today remains under military rule, with the possibility of extended military oversight of the political system for some time to come.

This conference explores how these two perspectives (the theoretical and the actual) combine in Southeast Asia today and how issues of legitimacy are managed, conferred, and maintained across the region.

Moderator: Christopher Ankersen, Clinical Associate Professor, NYU SPS Center for Global Affairs
