Abstract:

This paper examines the United Nations Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the American Convention on Human Rights to determine what impact ratification of these two agreements would have on the military justice system in the United States Air Force. For simplification, the Air Force military justice system is considered in three parts the criminal sanctioning process courts-martial and court-martial procedure, confinement procedures, and the non-criminal sanctioning process nonjudicial punishment under Article 15, Uniform Code of Military Justice.
