European Participation in International Operations: The Role of Strategic Culture
Swedish Defence University, Department of Security, Strategy and Leadership (ISSL), Political Science Section.
2016 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Taking its departure in the concept of strategic culture, this book answers the question of why European countries decide either to participate or not in international military operations. This volume examines strategic culture and its relation to justifications of decisions made by France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom with regard to four different operations: Operation Enduring Freedom ISAF in Afghanistan, Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq, Operation Unified Protector in Libya, and EU Navfor/Atalanta outside Somalia. In this work the authors closely analyse the role of civil-military relations with regard to decisions about participation.
