    Ledarskap under organisationsförändring: Kultur och ledarskap under förändringsarbete2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ledarskap och kultur är något som en chef under en förändring måste förstå och kunna arbeta med. Frågan är hur Försvarsmaktens modell utvecklande ledarskap kan användas under ett förändringsarbete? Slutsatser kan dras att det utvecklande ledarskapet som i stort grundar sig i medmänsklighet fungerar ypperligt att använda under en organisationsförändring.

    Försvarsmaktens organisationskultur är präglad av en lång historia och en stolthet hos personalen att arbeta inom organisationen. Hur denna kultur påverkas av en förändring är svårt att säga. Konklusionen av uppsatsen är att hela Försvarsmaktens kultur ej förändras, men kulturen kopplat till förändring blir negativt påverkad. Detta beroende på historiska aspekter av tidigare förändringar.

    13 years - Freedom or Security?: A theory testing case study about how cultural dimensions of job motivation are related to organizational structure in the military2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a world where multinational cooperation and cross-cultural challenges are part of daily life, understanding cultures has become increasingly important. That people and organizations develop together might seem obvious, but that culture can be studied to understand the structure and approach of organizations, is perhaps less so.

    In this paper, a major structural difference in the armed forces of Germany and Sweden is examined; having to sign a contract to serve for 13 years or not having to sign a contract with service length restrictions. Hofstede's theory Dimensions of National Culture is applied to the case to see whether the cadets' motivation and behavior is affected by this major difference in the two otherwise very similar organizations. The study aims also to explore whether the findings can be considered correct given that semi-structured interviews were conducted to see if the thoughts of the cadets are in line with what the theory claims.

    The conclusion is that the theory can be used to understand how cadets' motivation and behavior supports the structural organizations present in Germany and Sweden. However, the interviews show that the theory is very generalizing and that not all cadets' thoughts are consistent with what the theory states in every case.

    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.
