Notes

Abstract: The purpose of this research is to assess the role that an independent judiciary serves in the post-conflict environment. The existing literature on post-conflict environments has suggested that mitigating security dilemmas best ensures durable peace and that the presence of political institutions that safeguard against security dilemmas are necessary in promoting this peace. I argue that an independent judiciary is endowed with the security-assuring attributes that the previous literature claims to be necessary for political institutions to have in order to facilitate peace in post-conflict societies. I employ a Cox Proportional Hazards Model to test the effect that the presence of an independent judiciary has on the onset of renewed conflict using the dataset in Mason et al. (2011) and the CIRI Human Rights Data Project. Although the findings in this paper do not support the theoretical argument I set forth, they offer interesting implications for future research in this field of study. I offer a variety of explanations for these results that lend themselves to further inquiry in the study of post-conflict political institutions.
