Historical Memory and Military Training

James Martin Dec 08, 2015

Clements Center graduate fellow, James Martin, publishes article in Real Clear Defense titled "Historical Memory and Military Training: Bringing WHINSEC into the 21st Century."

"What could the U.S. government do to counteract the historical memory associated with WHINSECs predecessor SOA? One possible solution is to convert WHINSEC from a U.S. funded and led entity to a truly hemispheric institution by copying the successful model of the Inter-American Defense College (IADC). A cooperative institution run through the Organization of American States would reduce some of the paternalistic undercurrents present in the current institution."
