Gjennom en seminarrekke har IFS i 2019 rettet søkelyset mot grunnlagsproblemer i langtidsplanleggingen, mulige forsvarskonsepter for Norge og betydningen av NATO. I årets siste Insight reflekterer innlederne fra disse seminarene sammen med andre forskere over truslene, konseptene, ressursene og alliansen på veien mot en ny langtidsplan. Vi står foran et spennende forsvarspolitisk nytt år.http://forsvaret.no/ifs/Publikasjoner/ifs-insights-kronologisk-(2010-)/ifs_refleksjoner_truslene_konseptene_ressursene_alliansen_2021_2024

Ambisjonen er å erklære verdensrommet (space) som et femte operasjonsdomene for alliansen. Det er en tett kobling til USAs romambisjoner, og i denne Insighten ser Hans Morten Synstnes ved Norsk Romsenter nærmere på rasjonale for USAs revitaliserte romorientering fra 2017, opprettelsen av US Space Command i august 2019, og president Trumps ønske om å etablere US Space Force som ny forsvarsgren innen 2025. http://forsvaret.no/ifs/Publikasjoner/ifs-insights-kronologisk-(2010-)/synstnes_trump_space_force_romhegemoni

Nordmo, Morten, Olav Kjellevold Olsen, Jørn Hetland, Roar Espevik, Arnold Bastiaan Bakker and Ståle Pallesen. 2019. Daily sleep quality and naval work performance: the role of leadership. International Maritime HealthNordmo, Morten, Olav Kjellevold Olsen, Jørn Hetland, Roar Espevik, Arnold Bastiaan Bakker and Ståle Pallesen. 2019. Daily sleep quality and naval work performance: the role of leadership. International Maritime Health<p>​Background: Poor sleep is a growing concern in naval settings. Previous research has demonstrated that both civilian and military naval work strains sleep quality as well as a negative relationship between sleep quality and crew work performance. Variables moderating this relationship, such as leadership are of interest. Materials and methods: The present paper investigates how sailors’ daily variations in sleep quality influence self-rated naval work-performance and interacts with perceived daily transformational leadership during a 30-day naval training mission. </p><p>Results: Using multi-level analysis, we found significant positive main effects of sleep quality and transformational leadership on naval work performance. Transformational leadership moderated the sleep quality-work performance link. Individuals who experienced higher levels of leadership were less prone to reductions in performance after poor sleep. </p><p>Conclusions: Overall, the results suggest that leadership can partly negate some of the reduction in performance that often accompanies poor sleep, and that leadership becomes more important as the crew becomes sleepier. <br></p><p>Open access: <a href="file:///C:/Users/marholmen/AppData/Local/Packages/Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/TempState/Downloads/66079-198337-2-PB.pdf">file:///C:/Users/marholmen/AppData/Local/Packages/Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/TempState/Downloads/66079-198337-2-PB.pdf</a><br></p>

In the next weeks plain faculty from Russia’s sixteenth Special Purpose Brigade, the 76th Airborne Assault Division and the Black Sea Fleet’s Marines Brigade cooperated with purported “Crimean professional Russian self-protection powers” just as Crimean units of Ukraine’s “Berkut” exceptional police to “bar and hold onto Ukrainian army installations, government structures and key foundation offices”. On March 18 the Russian Government held a service in the Kremlin to sign a settlement under which Crimea and the city of Sevastopol ended up authority Russian areas. In the month of march the final maritime ship flying the Ukrainian banner on the promontory, the minesweeper Cherkassy, was raged and caught by “minimal green men”.

Martinsen, Kåre Dahl. 2019. Defeating TTIP: the French and German parliaments compared. Journal of Transatlantic Studies Martinsen, Kåre Dahl. 2019. Defeating TTIP: the French and German parliaments compared. Journal of Transatlantic Studies <p>​<span style="background-color:transparent;color:#333333;font-family:georgia, serif;font-size:17px;letter-spacing:0px;">After a start marked by great optimism on both sides of the Atlantic, negotiations for a Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership ended in 2016 after the German government decided to withdraw. Soon after, France followed suit. This was unexpected. The EU favoured the Partnership, and so did the German and French governments. Most expected French opposition to free trade to cause problems and Germany to welcome TTIP. As shown here, the opposite happened. <br><br>The explanation is partly how the governments framed the Partnership: in France as an instrument ensuring influence over international trade, in Germany as a purely commercial arrangement. Parliaments in the two countries approached TTIP differently: the Assemblée nationale made its own analyses and arranged hearings often attended by the government; the Bundestag remained passive and contacts with the government on TTIP were limited. Despite the fact that the German assembly is vested with far stronger formal powers than the French, they were not used. Attempts are made to explain the passivity displayed by German MPs.</span><br></p><p><span style="background-color:transparent;color:#333333;font-family:georgia, serif;font-size:17px;letter-spacing:0px;">Open access: <a href="https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1057/s42738-019-00029-7.pdf">https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1057%2Fs42738-019-00029-7.pdf</a></span></p>
Hagen, Anne Marie. 2019. Towards a Narrative Method: Using Life-Writing in Military Education. Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies 2(1)Hagen, Anne Marie. 2019. Towards a Narrative Method: Using Life-Writing in Military Education. Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies 2(1)<p>​This article begins by considering current English as second language (EL2) teaching in Norwegian professional military education (PME) and reflecting on how reading narrative life-writing texts written by former military personnel supports interdisciplinary learning and contributes to the development of English language skills. It then shows how, by building on this current practice, narrative may be developed into a method of critical reading and communication for junior officers. </p><p>Situating the use of life-writing texts in the context of military interest in narrative in the twenty-first century, and building on insights from life-writing and literacy research, the article argues that the reading of life-writing texts in military EL2 classes should be accompanied by teaching material and reading approaches designed to develop knowledge of narrative structures and techniques and awareness of how the text seeks to affect the reader. It further argues that this knowledge is a transferable skill of use to the military as a flexible communication tool: a narrative method.</p><p>Open access: <a href="https://sjms.nu/articles/10.31374/sjms.7/">https://sjms.nu/articles/10.31374/sjms.7/</a><br><br></p>

The Turkish Armed Forces and Civil-military Relations in Turkey after the 15 July 2016 Coup Attempt. Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies 2(1)<p>​This article places the 15 July coup attempt in Turkey into a wider context by examining the historical role of the Turkish military in politics, developments in civil-military relations since the turn of the millennium, and finally the implications of the recent coup attempt for relations between the military, the government, and society. It is argued that under Turkey’s new “strong” presidential system civilian political control and oversight of the armed forces will be strengthened, but there will not be any civilian democratic control and oversight as we usually understand this concept.</p><p><br>Open access: <a href="https://sjms.nu/articles/10.31374/sjms.14/" target="_blank">https://sjms.nu/articles/10.31374/sjms.14/</a><br></p>
