    The Deradicalization of Islamists by Islamists: Hamas's Kid Glove Approach to Salafi Jihadists in the Gaza Strip, 2010-20152017In: Strategic Assessment, ISSN 0793-8942, Vol. 20, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip first set out to crush the area’s Salafi jihadist groups by force. Once Hamas realized that the Salafi jihadi problem was more serious than it had first anticipated, however, Hamas’s approach shifted gradually, from a strategy of attempted elimination to one of containment and assimilation. Indeed, several of the pursued militants proved to be former colleagues from the Qassam Brigades who had grown disillusioned with Hamas and defected to fringe groups. This article examines how Hamas, as part of a new and progressive approach, aimed to rehabilitate these individuals by enrolling them in a prison-based deradicalization program that sought to appeal to a common ideological and religious base in Islam, treating Salafi jihadists as patients rather than as common criminals.

    KRIGFÖRINGENS PRINCIPER: en teoriprövande studie av krigföringens principer enligt J.F.C Fullers teori.2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The principles of war are surrounded by a fragmented debate concerning their practical applicability. Previous studies question the assertion regarding a correlation between successful battles and the application of the principles. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to contribute to the knowledge base about the extent to which applying the principles of war can explain successful outcomes in battles. Drawing on the theory of J.F.C Fuller, the study analyzes the occurrence of the principles in the battle of Raate Road and the battle of Tolvajärvi, fought in the Winter War in Finland, in 1939 and 1940.

    The research design has applied text analysis, in a qualitative approach. Findings indicate that all the principles of war are found in both cases examined but differ as to the extent of the application. Based on the findings of the study, the principles of war appear to play a central role in both battles with a successful outcome, and provide a partial explanation for success. Further empirical studies are needed in order to confirm the full extent of the principles’ significance.

    En försvarsmakt i förändring och anpassning: Ofreden vinns mellan krigen2012In: Kungl Krigsvetenskapsakademiens Handlingar och Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-5369, no 3, p. 141-148Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Israels erfarenheter efter det andra Libanonkriget år 2006 ledde omedelbart till ett beslut om att reformera hela den israeliska försvarsmakten, IDF. Tidigare vald väg, där lågintensiv krigföring var tydligt framträdande inom utbildning och materielanskaffning, visade sig under nämnda krig vara felaktig[1]. Förbanden saknade förmåga att strida mot en organiserad fiende med avancerad taktik och effektiva kort- och långräckviddiga vapen. Försvarsmakten inledde direkt efter kriget en omfattande reform som initialt genomfördes under två år, men som är under fortsatt utveckling.

    "Åtgärder som befrämja rikets försvar och överensstämma med flaggans värdighet": En undersökning av Sveriges marinstrategi våren 19412021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores Swedish naval strategy during the Second World War (1939-1945), an area that has not seen significant research. This paper focuses on how Swedish maritime forces were to be used in case of war with Germany (War Plan I; Krigsfall I), and with the Soviet Union (War plan II; Krigsfall II). This paper focuses on Swedish planning during the spring of 1941. The period after the fall of France (June 1940) and before the German invasion of the Soviet Union (June 1941) was a period where both Germany and the Soviet Union possessed what could be described as strategic freedom of action. This means large parts of their armed forces could have been used for operations against Sweden. The basis for each potential conflict was different: Germany occupied Norway and Denmark and could launch a ground invasion of Sweden directly; meanwhile Sweden and the Soviet Union were still separated by Finland and the Baltic Sea. Maritime forces would therefore play very different roles in the two War Plans. No official plans in case of war with the western Allies existed at the time, and hence this has not been explored here.

    The conclusion of this paper is that Swedish naval strategy at the time was somewhat offensive and focused on gaining sea control, at least in the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Bothnia, to maintain freedom of action to be able to conduct troop movements along the Swedish coast, to the island of Gotland, and to Finland.
