The Law Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. has published a new comparative report on the handling and adjudication of sexual offenses in the military.
The report examines how the military justice systems of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom deal with alleged sexual offending by service members.
The Library occasionally publishes reports that compare the laws on a given theme in a number of countries.
Earlier comparative law reports from the Law Library of Congress have covered topics such as:
- Campaign Finance
- Children’s Rights
- Constitutional Provisions on Women’s Equality
- Education of Non-Native Language Speaking Children
- Foreign Aid Regulation
- Guest Worker Programs
- Habeas Corpus Rights
- Online Privacy Law
- Repatriation of Historic Human Remains (return of indigenous remains and cultural items)
- Sex Selection & Abortion
The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection of over 2.65 million volumes from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.
