Expert on the relationship between the United States and Latin America

Silvina Romano is an Argentinian historian with focus on the relations between the United States and Latin America during the Cold War and today, and the use of the judicial system for regime changes.

Lawfare is a political war through the courts, which uses legal tools improperly for political persecution, which uses the law as a weapon to destroy the adversary. Lawfare operates from high places through a judicial apparatus that rises above the Legislative and Executive Power, expanding the margin of maneuver and power of the judges, paving the way for a growing “juristocracy”.”
