Historical experiences, strategic culture, and strategic behavior: Poland in the anti-ISIS coalition
Swedish Defence University, Department of Security, Strategy and Leadership (ISSL), Division of Strategy.
2018 (English)In: Defence Studies, ISSN 1470-2436, E-ISSN 1743-9698, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 454-473Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article contributes to an explanation of why Poland, after a period of almost two years’ hesitation, decided to dispatch military forces to the United States-led coalition against the Islamic State in June 2016. The Polish case is examined by applying the concept of strategic culture, taking into account a state’s core military strategic beliefs and the historical experiences on which these beliefs are based. The case study shows that strategic culture shaped the Polish decision-making on the coalition, by predisposing the decision-makers toward a typical Polish behavior in international military operations, namely to exchange security benefits with important allies. The article also has implications for the general study of strategic culture, by specifying the relationship between historical experiences and strategic culture.
