Crafting Democratic Control of the Military: a Comparative Analysis of South Korea, Chile and Ghana

Published on 1 January 1996

This is the second part of an extended article; Part I, ‘Democracy and the Military: An Epitaph for Frankenstein’s Monster?’ appeared in the previous issue of this journal. Part II takes as its starting point the theoretical analysis developed in Part I and applies it to three empirical cases, South Korea, Chile and Ghana. Behind the superficial similarity between the way the transition to democracy has been ‘crafted’ in the three countries, there lie significant variations which have also complicated the tasks of controlling the military and consolidating democracy.
