Developing Latin America Returns!

In loving memory of Juan Roque Machin Piñeyro (1957–2016).

In this article my good friend +Basilio Martinez and I analyze three deviations from the separation of powers principle, as they have happened in Latin America, with specific cases from Mexico and Venezuela. Want to find out what happens when a lawyer and a librarian join forces again?

In the new issue of Developing Latin America: 'Four theories to improve justice in the region', co-written with my good friend, the lawyer Basilio A. Martínez-Villa, we provide a very brief introduction to the theories of justice of John Rawls, Ronald Dworkin, Jürgen Habermas and Amartya Sen.
