"New sources of military change – armed forces as normal organizations". Defence Studies 16 (3).<p>​The literature on how European states have adapted to the post-cold war security environment ffocuses invariably on different understandings of <em>military transformation</em>, a process which is seen as inherently different from other forms of organizational change. </p><p>However, as this paper argues, new management practices, going back to the introduction of so-called New Public Management (NPM) reforms throughout Europe in the 1980s, have eventually penetrated also the last bastion of the old state – the defense sector. </p><p>Taking a critical approach to the idea of military transformation and existing theories of military change, the paper demonstrates how other international developments have pushed towards what may be seen as a "normalization" of Europe's defense sectors. This has important implications for how we approach and understand change in contemporary defense organizations.</p><p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14702436.2016.1195234" target="_blank">To read the article, go to <em>Defence Studies </em>on the Taylor & Francis website.
