    Abstract [en]

    The civil-military interface in peace support operations is changing due to increasingly overlapping tasks, increased military involvement in humanitarian activities, and increased integration of all involved actors, not least through various current strategic concepts. This article not only describes these trends, but also, more importantly, analyses certain consequences in terms of mission effectiveness. The focus of the analysis is the ideas of 'militarisation of humanitarian aid' and the reverse 'humanitarianisation of the military'. The main arguments of this contribution are that the assumptions of increased effectiveness stemming from civil-military integration cannot be taken for granted and that there are harmful consequences stemming from blurring the lines between civilian, humanitarian and military actors. There is, in other words, a need to better specify and explain the causal mechanisms that lead to effectiveness in complex peace support operations.

    Complex peace operations and civil-military relations: winning the peace2009Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book explores the impact of different civil-military structures on operational effectiveness in complex peace operations. Recent operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia are examples of grand failures to enforce peace and to promote democracy and development through international interventions. A missing variable in analyses of these conflicts hitherto has been the nature of the civil-military interface and its impact. The principal argument of this book is that the civil-military interface should ideally be integrated within the interagency arena as well as within the defence ministry. Such integration has the potential to provide joint civil-military planning and comprehensive approaches to operations. It also creates mutual trust and understanding amongst officers and civil servants from different departments, agencies and units, and thereby, a co-operative interagency culture. For the civil-military interface to function effectively within the chain of command during operations, a co-operative culture of trust is essential. Crucially, structurally and culturally integrated civil-military structures are likely to provide a more balanced view of the functional imperative of the armed forces. The results are armed forces fit for whatever purpose the political leadership decides for them - including complex peace support operations. Empirically, the book applies the theoretical framework to a comparative study of US and British patterns of civil-military relations, their strategic cultures and their operations in Iraq. This book will be of much interest to students of peace operations, civil-military relations, humanitarian intervention, and security studies/IR in general.

Waltz Dissertation Prize for the best thesis in the field of international security.

    Framtida konfliktyper: En modell för kategorisering av krig och konflikter (S14)2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att kategorisera och namnge möjliga framtida konflikter syftar till att mentalt förbereda sig på olika alternativ och därmed ge organisationen möjlighet att anpassa sin förmåga att hantera de olika utmaningar som dessa konfliktkategorier kan tänkas medföra. Begrepp, eller teoretiska koncept, är viktiga då de har dubbla roller. Dels är de analytiska instrument för att förenkla, strukturera och förstå verkligheten. Överförenklade begrepp och kategorier riskerar däremot att fördärva vår verklighetsuppfattning och angripa de ”verkliga” problemen på ett effektivt sätt. Begrepp är dock inte bara analytiska avbilder av verkligheten, de har även en konstruktivistisk roll – de formar vår verklighetsuppfattning. Detta innebär att de definitioner och begrepp vi använder på insatser kommer att forma vår uppfattning och förståelse av insatsen. Det senaste utkastet till Militärstrategisk doktrin 2012 gör vikten av förståelse av konflikters karaktär mycket tydlig:

    All personal i Försvarsmakten måste förstå och kunna hantera krigets skiftande karaktär. Det ligger i krigets natur att dess karaktär ständigt skiftar och aldrig upprepar sig. Ingen kan styra krigets karaktär. Vi måste därför i vart fall noga bedöma den specifika konfliktens karaktär och anpassa medel och metoder därefter.

    Syftet med studien är därför att assistera Försvarsmakten i strävan efter denna förståelse genom att skapa en tydlig kategorisering av möjliga framtida konflikter. Denna kategorisering utgår från centrala parametrar och begrepp som anses tongivande för att förstå olika typer av framtida konflikter. Beskrivna konflikttyper skall sedan användas för att ta fram övergripande beskrivningar av möjliga framtida försvarsmaktsprofiler, så kallade idébilder, samt för utveckling av Försvarsmaktens befintliga strategiska typscenarier.

     

    Baserat på en generell diskussion om drivkrafter för framtida konflikter och en genomgång av existerande begrepp för att kategorisera konflikter så har en relativt enkel modell skapats i denna studie. En fyrfältare har skapats baserad på två variabler som påverkar konfliktens karaktär:

    1. Militär förmåga (Från låg till hög förmåga)
    2. Relativ förmåga i förhållande till motpart (Symmetri eller asymmetri av förmåga)

     

    Reguljär/Symmetrisk konflikt

    Reguljär/symmetrisk krigföring kännetecknas av två aktörer med likartad och hög militär förmåga – med största sannolikhet två stater. Denna typ av krigföring är mycket väl beskriven i både doktrin och teoretiska sammanhang och behöver inte beskrivas närmare här. Värt att notera är att dessa krig tenderar att bli storskaliga och högintensiva, dels på grund av krigets inre logik vilket leder till eskalation (Clausewitz) och dels på grund av de stora aktörernas förmåga och kapacitet att eskalera.

    Reguljär/Asymmetriskt konflikt

    Dessa konflikter kännetecknas av två aktörer med hög militär förmåga men som ändå är långt ifrån symmetriska. Exempel är Falklandskriget 1982 och Gulfkriget 1991. Trots att Saddam Hussein kunde mobilisera mer än en halv miljon man så medförde deras tekniska underlägsenhet gentemot den USA-ledda koalitionen en asymmetrisk konflikt. Dessa konflikter tenderar att bli mycket kortvariga om inte den svagare parten övergår i irreguljär krigföring.

    Irreguljär/Symmetrisk konflikt

    Dessa konflikter kännetecknas av två svaga (med traditionella mått på militär krigföringsförmåga) militära aktörer som slåss med samma irreguljära metoder. Flera inbördeskrig i Afrika tillhört denna kategori. Inte minst kriget i Liberia mellan bland andra NPFL och INPFL. Dessa konflikter eskalerar snarare i brott mot krigets lagar än i konfliktens intensitet – vilket i slutändan innebär allvarliga brott mot mänskliga rättigheter, barnsoldater, våld mot civila och därmed mycket svårläkta sår för samhället i en post-konfliktsitutation.

    Irreguljär/Asymmetrisk

    Denna konfliktkategori omfattar två aktörer med olika krigföringsförmåga där den svagare parten valt irreguljära metoder för att bekämpa en överlägsen fiende. Gerillakrig, upprorsmotverkan och många komplexa fredsfrämjande insatser ryms inom denna kategori. Pågående konflikter i Afghanistan, Irak, Colombia och mellan Israel och Palestinierna är ett antal exempel.

    Hybridkrigföring

    Hybridkrigföring beskrivs som en kombination av traditionell krigföring, blandat med terrorism, andra asymmetriska hot och upprorsverksamhet. Orsaken till begreppet är en ökad insikt om att de traditionella dikotomierna beskrivna ovan är missvisande i en betydligt mer komplex verklighet där olika typer av krigföring flyter ihop. Det är viktigt att notera att då fienden bedriver flera olika typer av krigföring samtidigt – hybridkrigföring – så ställs det med stor sannolikhet liknande krav på våra förband.

    Aktörers intressen och förändringar av konflikters karaktär

    Analysen trycker vid flera tillfällen på vikten av förståelse för att konflikter inte är statiska utan att konflikters karaktär kan ändras på flera olika sätt. Därför har studien även diskuterat ett antal tänkbara rörelser mellan modellens fem fält. Aktörernas intressen är utöver detta avgörande för förändringsbenägenheten i konflikter, då motgångar för aktörer med absoluta mål kommer leda till metodförändringar vilket i sin tur förändrar konfliktens karaktär.

     

    Slutligen presenterar studien ett par exempel på hur modellen kan användas inom FM för strategisk planering och framtagande av typscenarior. Trots att territoriella hot mot Sverige inte diskuterades framkom det med tydlighet att det kommer krävas en mycket stor bredd av förmågor för svenska förband – en kraftfull och expeditionär Försvarsmakt som med trovärdighet kan agera utmed hela konfliktskalan – på hemmaplan, i närområdet och internationellt. Flexibilitet och anpassningsförmåga är dessutom central ledord för att kunna följa med i framtida konflikters karaktärsförändringar. Statiska militära organisationer tillhör det förflutna.

    Lessons from Helmand, Afghanistan: What now for British counterinsurgency?2011In: International Affairs, ISSN 0020-5850, E-ISSN 1468-2346, Vol. 87, no 2, p. 297-315Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the conduct of British operations in Helmand between 2006 and 2010 and discusses the implications for the legacy and future of British counterinsurgency. Substantially changed training, painful relearning of counterinsurgency principles and changed mindsets are necessary to avoid repeated early failures in the future. Moreover, despite eventually adapting tactically to the situation and task in Helmand, the British Armed Forces proved inadequate in dealing with the task assigned to them for two key reasons. First, the resources of the British military are simply too small for dealing with large-scale complex engagements such as those in Helmand or southern Iraq. Second, the over-arching comprehensive approach, and especially the civilian lines of operations that underpinned Britain's historical successes with counterinsurgency, are today missing.

    The organised hypocrisy of international state-building2010In: Conflict, Security and Development, ISSN 1467-8802, E-ISSN 1478-1174, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 465-491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses the concept of 'organised hypocrisy' as a means of making sense of the inconsistencies and contradictions in contemporary theory and practice of international state-building. While organised hypocrisy in international politics allows states and organisations to maintain systemic stability and legitimacy by managing irreconcilable pressures that might otherwise render them unable to operate effectively, this paper argues that organised hypocrisy also has negative impacts on the operational effectiveness of state-building. It allows organisations to engage in operations without sufficient resources, thereby seriously undermining operational effectiveness and the credibility of international state-building as a legitimate political tool. Organised hypocrisy also creates false expectations among the local and global populations and thereby decreases the credibility of the strategic narrative that is supposed to explain and make sense of the transformation processes to the general public. The paper also explores a number of options for dealing with organised hypocrisy in a way that could improve the effectiveness of international state-building.

    Winning 'Hearts and Minds'?: A Critical Analysis of Counter-Insurgency Operations in Afghanistan2010In: Civil Wars, ISSN 1369-8249, E-ISSN 1743-968X, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 282-303Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article conducts a critical analysis of the historical lessons, theassumptions and the conduct of ‘hearts and minds’ approaches to counterinsurgency.This results in challenges. Theoretically the ‘hearts and minds’approach is rooted in modernisation theory and a normative Western approachto legitimacy that fails to live up to the expectations of the local population.The approach is also based on lessons from past successes such as the British1950s campaign in Malaya. However, a great contextual shift has taken placesince then and the relevance of past experiences is therefore questionable ina context of complex state-building in the wake of intervention. This also haspractical consequences as we seek to rectify the often misapplied approachesof today.

    Laudable, Ahistorical and Overambitious: Security Sector Reform Meets State Formation Theory2009In: Conflict, Security and Development, ISSN 1467-8802, E-ISSN 1478-1174, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 27-54(28)Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Security sector reform (SSR) is a concept that is highly visible within policy and practice circles and that increasingly shapes international programmes for development assistance, security co-operation and democracy promotion. This paper examines the concept and practice of SSR using theories of the state and state formation within a historical-philosophical perspective. The paper recognises that the processes of SSR are highly laudable and present great steps forward towards more holistic conceptions of security and international development. However, the main argument of the paper is that we should be careful of having too high expectations of the possibility of SSR fulfilling its ambitious goals of creating states that are both stable and democratic and accountable. Instead, we should carefully determine what level of ambition is realistic for each specific project depending on local circumstances. A further argument of this paper is that legitimate order and functioning state structures are prerequisites and preconditions for successful democratisation and accountability reforms within the security sector.

    Nordic Approaches to Whole-of-Government: in Afghanistan and beyond2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Comprehensive Approach (CA) and Whole-of-Government Approach (WGA) are rather new concepts within the field of security studies. They can be described as approaches based on the assumption that greater integration, coherence and coordination will result in more effective peacekeeping operations. The concept of CA has been adopted by different international organizations and WGA by several countries which in different ways have realted to the concept in propositions and steering documents. Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark have also realized the importance of CA/WGA, not least as regards the ongoing operation in Afghanistan where all the Nordic countries are involved and where the operation is characterized by a range of actors working in different missions withing the same field. What do these Nordic national strategies towards CA/WGA look like? Might we speak of a common Nordic CA/WGA model?

    Conflict Analysis: Handbook2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This handbook describes a method of performing conflict analysis as part of strategic planning. The purpose, amongst others, is to achieve a more cohesive and coordinated effort by civilian and military components. The conflict analysis described here involves two different ways of presenting results achieved. Firstly, a method where the primary purpose is to visualize key factors in a way so as to create an understanding of the wholeness and how the various subfactors interact overall. Secondly, written documentation is used; the purpose being to increase knowledge of the various problem areas by presenting background information and by writing down and compiling the discussions which arise while conflict analysis is taking place.

    Handbok: konfliktanalys2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna handbok beskriver en metod för att genomföra en konfliktanalys som en del i en strategisk planering. Syftet är bland annat att möjliggöra en mer samlad och koordinerad insats med civila och militära enheter. Den konfliktanalys som här redovisas innehåller två olika sätt att presentera det resultat som uppnås. Dels används en metod som har till främsta uppgift att visualisera centrala faktorer på ett sådant sätt att det skapas en förståelse för helheten och hur de olika delfaktorerna interagerar på ett övergripande plan. Dels används en skriftlig dokumentation vars syfte är att fördjupa kunskapen inom olika problemområden genom att presentera bakgrundsinformation och genom att nedteckna och sammanställa den diskussion som äger rum då konfliktanalysen genomförs.

    Reappraising Late Medieval Strategy: The Example of the 1415 Agincourt Campaign2012In: War in history, ISSN 0968-3445, E-ISSN 1477-0385, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 123-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern military historians struggle to explain medieval strategic behaviour. One key reason, the article argues, is their strong belief in the existence of timeless strategic standards. By analysing the example of the 1415 Agincourt campaign, the article proposes a new approach to understanding late medieval strategy. By reconstructing the normative framework that underpinned strategic practice, the critical importance emerges of an unusual set of conventions which regulated strategy and which allowed for a degree of risk-taking that the traditional and current historiography cannot otherwise explain.

    The Power to Hurt in Civil War: The Strategic Aim of RENAMO Violence2009In: Journal of Southern African Studies, ISSN 0305-7070, E-ISSN 1465-3893, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 821-834Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article develops a theoretical explanation for the seemingly indiscriminate violence used by RENAMO during the civil war in Mozambique, a phenomenon that dominant theories on civil war violence cannot account for fully. The analysis builds on interviews with the RENAMO leadership and Mozambican academics as well as secondary sources on the patterns of violence. It concludes that RENAMO used mass violence to weaken the support for the government and create war fatigue. The main strategy was to cause enough damage to pressure the government into entering negotiations. The use of most violence against civilians in those areas where the population was believed to support the government, in combination with a clear objective to destabilise the government and a disciplined military organisation, support the argument that mass violence was employed to demonstrate 'the power to hurt'.
