Specialization in the history of Latin America

The Latin American, or rather the Latin Caribbean region includes territories in the Western Hemisphere located south of the border of the United States of America.

Includes Mexico, Central and South America, and Caribbean islands. There are 34 independent states in the region and a number of territories administered by other states, for example, the island of Puerto Rico is administered by the United States, and the Turks and Caicos Islands are administered by the United Kingdom. The population of the region is more than half a billion people. nine0003

Most Caribbean states (eg Jamaica and Barbados) were mostly British colonies in the past and gained independence relatively recently in the 1960s-1980s. The Caribbean countries have a noticeable specificity in development in comparison with other countries of the region, so their study stands out in a special direction.

The actual name Latin America is traditionally attributed to 20 states of the region, which in the XVI — XIX centuries. were colonies of Spain, Portugal and France, countries with a Latin-based language and culture. Most of these colonies gained independence already in the 19th century. The largest countries of modern Latin America, both in terms of territory and economic influence, are Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile. nine0003

The peoples of Latin American countries have come a long way of development, have created a rich and unique culture, in which features of different cultures are closely intertwined — European, Indian, Negro. Study of the colonial history of Latin America, its struggle for independence, the formation of independent Latin American states and their development in the 19th century. is an important area of ​​our specialization.

History of the countries of Latin America in the XX century. was extremely difficult and stormy. It absorbed the difficult processes of the formation of a modern national industry, the formation of the main social groups of capitalist society, and the building of the foundations of representative democracy in place of the former oligarchic states. In the countries of the region throughout the twentieth century. was filled with a fierce social struggle of the population for the expansion of their democratic rights, for the strengthening of nation-states, against brutal military dictatorships. The study of all these subjects is also one of the main areas of specialization. nine0003

Will Switzerland supply weapons to «hot spots»?

Maintenance of armored vehicles (in the photo — the Leopard tank), which is in service with the Swiss armed forces, at one of the repair facilities of the Ruag state military-industrial holding. Keystone
nine0002 The military industry of the Confederacy has long called for softening the conditions for the export of weapons and dual-use goods. Recently, the parliament actually allowed the supply of weapons even to countries where civil wars are going on, referring to the need to ensure the full capacity of the domestic military-industrial complex. Human rights organizations and part of the deputies express doubts and concerns.

Andrea Tonina (Andrea Tonina)

Recall how it all began. In September last 2017, about a dozen Swiss armaments and ammunition companies, including Ruag External link , General Dynamics European Land System-Mowag External link , Rheinmetall External link and Thales External link , appealed to the Parliamentary Committee on on security policy under the Swiss Council of States (small chamber of the federal parliament) with a demand to relax the rules regarding the export of arms and military equipment. In particular, as the newspaper wrote about it Tages AnzeigerExternal link , they demanded that they be able to supply defensive weapons «to countries with internal military conflicts.»

The motivation of these companies was simple: in the face of increased competition on the international arms market, they wanted to achieve conditions at least as good as those in the European Union. Until recently, the government decree «On the military-technical cooperation of the Swiss Confederation with foreign states and on the legal basis for the export of military materials, military equipment and dual-use goods» ( Verordnung über das KriegsmaterialExternal link ) clearly prohibited such supplies.

The thesis about the need to ensure full and constant utilization of the production capacities of the domestic military-industrial complex found full understanding in the government, and this was especially true of the country’s Minister of Economy, Johann Schneider-Ammann. Being an entrepreneur himself and the owner of a technology concern, he perfectly understood what unloaded capacities could turn out to be. As a result, the parliament, at the suggestion of the government, allowed the export of weapons even to countries where civil wars are going on. nine0003

Armaments and defensive materials

As the government later clarified in its press release External link , such a decision should not entail radical changes in the established practice of Bern’s military-technical cooperation with foreign states. “We are talking about the fact that in some, very special cases, a permit for the export of these types of products can be issued even in relation to a country in whose territory armed conflicts take place, on the understanding that the exported weapons and military equipment will not and cannot be used by one of the parties / parties to the internal armed conflict. nine0003

“These measures mainly concern weapons of a uniquely defensive nature”

Fabian Meienfisch, SecoExternal link

End of insertion

“These measures mainly concern weapons of a clearly defensive nature, such as air defense systems,” says Fabian Maienfisch (Fabian Maienfisch), official representative of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO, a division of the Ministry of Economy). — In countries where civil wars are really taking place, such as Syria or Yemen, weapons will still not be exported. In addition, we will not supply “offensive” lethal weapons to such countries, in particular, armored vehicles (tanks), hand grenades, automatic small arms (machine guns, assault rifles).” nine0003

At the same time, the government also made another decision, namely, to increase the validity of one-time export licenses from one year to two years, while retaining the cabinet’s right to revoke such licenses in case of gross violation of export laws. The Cabinet believes that the future procedure for the export of weapons and related dual-use materials should, nevertheless, ultimately, taking into account the plans and needs of military development and national defense, formulated and enshrined in the Federal Law «On Military-Technical Cooperation of the Swiss Confederation with Foreign States » (» nine0161 Bundesgesetz über das KriegsmaterialExternal link «), take more into account the need to ensure the continuous utilization of military production capacities.

The question remains how and on what legal basis all this should be translated into concrete life. This issue will be taken up by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense and the Federal Office of Justice (BJ, a division of the Swiss Ministry of Justice and Police). How long this work will last, according to Fabian Mayenfisch, is still impossible to say. nine0003

Risk of human rights violations

Contrary to government assurances that changes to the regulation of military exports are limited and that Swiss neutrality will remain intact, the Parliament’s decision has already been the subject of some rather harsh criticism.

“Switzerland cannot undertake peacekeeping efforts and at the same time export arms to countries engulfed in internal conflicts”

Anna Neff, GSoA

End of insertion

“Switzerland risks losing its reputation as an honest broker and conflict mediator. It cannot make peace efforts and simultaneously export weapons to countries torn by internal conflicts,” says Anna Naeff, spokesperson for the Group for a Switzerland Without an Army ( Gruppe für eine Schweiz ohne ArmeeExternal link ) in an interview with the Swiss public German-language television SRFExternal link .

“Switzerland should at least guarantee compliance with the minimum standards enshrined in the international “ Arms Trade TreatyExternal link ” (Arms Trade Treaty, ATT / ATT), that is, for example, it should impose a ban on the supply of weapons to where there is justified risk of their use for the purpose of committing war crimes, or where their use could lead to gross violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms,” says Patrick Walder, who oversees the Swiss office of the organization Amnesty InternationalExternal link arms trade issues.

“The legal innovations themselves, which have been decided by the parliament and the government, do not yet contradict the basic norms of human rights,” admits Patrick Walder. “However, they significantly increase the risk of serious human rights violations or even war crimes. This risk becomes even more evident in the case of shipments to countries that systematically violate human rights, such as Pakistan or Saudi Arabia, given that it is not possible to independently monitor the human rights situation there.” nine0003

Theory and practice

Patrick Walder also notes that these decisions of the government and parliament are very controversial from the point of view of democratic legislative procedures. “Recall that in 2008, on the eve of the referendum on a complete ban on military exports from Switzerland, the Federal Council, the government, seriously tightened the relevant legal framework. But time passed and the office quietly took back his words and loosened the reins again. This is no good! This is a lie»! nine0003

Ten years ago, the government did indeed restrict military exports to a very large extent, for example by introducing a total ban on arms exports to countries involved in internal or international armed conflicts ( details at External link ). But a year later, a large group of legal scholars addressed the Federal Council in the format of an open letter, pointing out that in practice all these principles are simply ignored. nine0003

Therefore, in 2014, further amendments were made to the military export legislation. The new wording allowed the export of military materials, including to countries that systematically and grossly violate human rights, provided, however, that «the risk that the use of these materials in any way lead to violations of human rights will be at minimum level.»

Two years later, in 2016External link , The Federal Council again allowed the export of air defense parts and ammunition to Saudi Arabia, despite the country’s direct involvement in the armed conflict in Yemen. This decision led to a new round of fierce public debate in the Confederation on the subject of the ethical and legal foundations of Swiss military exports.

More flexible

Patrick Walder regrets that in making his latest decision on the legal framework for the operation of Swiss military exports, the relevant committees of the Parliament and the government listened only to the opinion of the military-industrial lobby. “No one consulted with us, with civil society and human rights activists,” he says. The fact that the government, practically without objecting, “cave in” to the demands of the military-industrial complex, caused discontent among a number of right-of-centre parliamentarians. nine0003

So, back in May 2018, the chairman of the Bürgerlich-Demokratische Partei of Switzerland (Bürgerlich-Demokratische Partei — BDP) Martin Landolt ( Martin LandoltExternal link ) demanded, in the format of a parliamentary initiative, to take a decision on the transfer of powers in the field of forming the legal framework for development military-technical cooperation of the Confederation with foreign countries from the government to parliament. Thus, the relevant decisions of the deputies could be submitted to nationwide referendums, and this would become an additional tool for controlling the export of weapons. In addition, the criteria for export deliveries should, in his opinion, be prescribed in the Federal Law, and not in a government decree, that is, they should not be technical, but of a fundamental nature. nine0003

In an interview with the tabloid Blick, the politician also mentioned a petition protesting the supply of arms to countries torn by civil wars, which was signed by 12,000 people. In May 2018, this document was submitted to the Federal Chancellery in Bern. “The Federal Council, the government, clearly underestimates the weight of public opinion in such a critical area as the export of military materials,” says Patrick Walder.

The Swiss press, for their part, emphasized that the latest decision of the Parliament and the government on the legal basis for military exports was a sign of a change in the balance of power in the cabinet: if former Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter was against the liberalization of conditions for the export of military materials, then his successor Ignazio Cassis , apparently, is set up in this case more «flexibly» and is more ready to listen to the requests of the national military-industrial complex.
