Rebel courts and judicial systems can be imposing institutions in the lives of the rebels who operate them and the citizens living under their jurisdiction. Rebel judiciaries challenge the ways that rules are made and enforced, potentially undermining state legitimacy and governance. As such, rebel courts have long term implications for the independence and functioning of the state judicial system once conflict has ended. Using new data on rebel judiciaries across armed conflicts from 1946 through 2017, Dr. Loyle examines variation in the structure, transparency, and civilian engagement of rebel courts in order to better understand the ways in which rebel courts impact the long-term functioning of the post-conflict judiciary.
