Abstract [en]

Research is currently being prepared and initiated to analyse the French army’s military leadership perspective, and in the process researchers are interested in how other leadership theories would be applicable in the French army’s officer education.

The purpose of this thesis is to highlight the perspective of a national Swedish military leadership theory in an international environment, and to study if the Swedish theory of Developmental leadership is also applicable outside a Swedish military educational context, specifically during the French army’s officer education.

The research consisted of a qualitative literature analysis on a French doctrinal document, an observation and eight in-depth interviews, in order to establish to what extent the Swedish theory of Developmental leadership could be applied in the French army’s officer education.

The author found that the Swedish theory of Developmental leadership could be applied as a good French army military leadership, as far as several of the informants and parts the French doctrinal document were concerned.

However, the author also found a lack of leadership theory, regarding the French army’s military leadership and gives four suggestions on further research on the subject.
