European Security. 6 MarchIda Maria Oma and Magnus Petersson. 2019. Exploring the role of dependence in influencing small states’ alliance contributions: A reputation mechanism argument and assessment. European Security. 6 March<p class="forsvaretElement-p">​Dependence has been demonstrated to be a main factor driving small states’ alliance contributions. However, the causal pathway linking dependence on the one hand, and small states’ contributions on the other, is seldom explicated and assessed. Furthermore, the ways in which dependence may shape, not only drive, such contributions, have received little attention. The purpose of this article is to elaborate the role of dependence in these regards. Drawing on Glenn H. Snyder’s “fear of abandonment” concept, it is argued that reputation is the main mechanism linking dependence and contributions. The article specifies the causal pathway and assesses it against case-study evidence of Norway’s and Sweden’s military participation in ISAF. The process tracing lends much support to the proposed mechanism, and comparison helps clarify how different alliance relationship status (member or partner) impacts on the theorised causal chain.</p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Go to <a href="https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09662839.2019.1589455">Taylor & Francis Online to read the article</a><br></p>
Torunn Laugen Haaland and Elin Gustavsen, 2019. “From commemoration to celebration: the making of the Norwegian Liberation and Veterans Day”, Memory studies, Online first, 17 February 2019.Torunn Laugen Haaland and Elin Gustavsen, 2019. “From commemoration to celebration: the making of the Norwegian Liberation and Veterans Day”, Memory studies, Online first, 17 February 2019.<p class="forsvaretElement-p">​This article examines how and to what extent recent wars affect war commemoration. We do this through an analysis of the establishment of a Veterans Day in Norway, instituted on May 8, the traditional Liberation Day in memory of World War 2. We document how this merger has transformed May 8 from a low-key war commemoration to a celebration of the Armed Forces. Through our study, we emphasize how authorities attempt to form new mnemonic practices to give meaning to recent wars. These practices were informed by transnational events, but also constrained by deeply embedded national genres of commemoration. In Norway, the Liberation and Veterans Day has become a secluded event, attended by political and military leaders, but largely ignored by the public. We argue that commemorative practices that fail to resonate with shared experiences in society and are at odds with national identities will have limited appeal and support.</p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Go to: <a href="https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/1750698019829867">Sage Journals</a><br></p>

Paderborn: Verlag Ferdinand Schöning <p>​Ob zuzeiten der Hanse, im Dreißigjährigen Krieg, im Zeitalter der Weltkriege oder im Kalten Krieg – der Ostseeraum war immer schon von besonderem strategischem Interesse. Allerdings wechselten sich in dieser Region Phasen der Anspannung immer wieder mit längeren Perioden der Stabilität ab. Die heutige Situation wird vor allem von den Auswirkungen der Besetzung der Krim durch Russland stark beeinflusst. Diesem strategischen Schock war eine längere Periode vorausgegangen, in der die Region sicherheitspolitisch nur wenig Beachtung erfahren hatte.</p><p>Mit der Auflösung der Sowjetunion hatte Anfang der 1990er Jahre zunächst Unsicherheit über die Zukunft der Russischen Föderation und ihr Verhältnis zu den unabhängig gewordenen baltischen Staaten geherrscht. Bald aber setzte eine Phase ein, in der die Ostsee vor allem als stabiler und wirtschaftlich dynamischer Raum hervortrat, in dem sich die euro-atlantischen Strukturen ohne größere Konflikte ausweiteten. Gleichzeitig richtete sich die strategische Aufmerksamkeit des Westens auf die Südflanke der Allianz, auf den Balkan und die Konflikte im Nahen Osten und in Afrika. Spätestens nach dem Terrorangriff von 9/11 und mit den darauffolgenden Kriegen in Afghanistan und Irak war die NATO »out of area«. Das »Kerngeschäft« der Allianz, die kollektive Verteidigung, war auf der westlichen Agenda in den Hintergrund gerückt. </p><p>Währenddessen arbeitete Präsident Wladimir Putin seit seinem Amtsantritt 2000 zielgerichtet auf die Wiederherstellung von Russlands Großmachtstatus hin. Spätestens mit dem georgisch-russischen Krieg 2008 zeichnete sich ab, dass Russland bereit war, auf weitere Eingriffe in seine Interessensphäre auch militärisch zu reagieren. Insbesondere nach der völkerrechtswidrigen Annexion der Krim und der militärischen Destabilisierung der Ostukraine, begann sich die strategische Bedeutung des Ostseeraums grundlegend zu ändern.<br></p><p><a href="https://www.schoeningh.de/katalog/titel/978-3-506-79331-7.html">Verlag Ferdinand Schöning</a><br></p><p><br></p>

Redigert av Janne Haaland Matláry og Robert John<p>This new work examines how the European states, the United Kingdom and the United States will approach the defence and Security of Europe in the medium and long-term. It is often assumed that Brexit, the United Kingdom's departure from the political and commercial European Union, would affect defence and security profoundly, but the basis of that assumption is rarely analysed. Bringing together a panel of specialists from Europe, the UK, the EU, and the United States, this volume evaluates the relative position they play in Europe's defence in the era of Brexit. It examines the arguments, challenges, and problems in European defence, and tests them against the residual commitment, cohesion, and capabilities of the states concerned, including Anglo-French military co-operation, the silent Anglo-German partnership, the US-UK Special Relationship, and the emergent Northern Group.</p><p>Go to <a href="https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783319971681">"Palgrave macmillan"</a><br></p><p><br></p>

Palgrave macmillan<p>​<span style="color:#555555;font-family:verdana, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;">This book examines how recent fundamental changes influence Sino-Russian relations and the wider long-term implications of the revolving Sino-Russian dynamic on international affairs. It brings together leading scholars to examine recent developments across the whole relationship – from grand strategy and global governance, to bilateral energy and military ties, and regional interaction in Central Asia, Northeast Asia, and the Middle East. The Sino-Russian relationship boasts major achievements, but also reveals important differences and latent tensions. The project is intended for policy-makers, academics and students of strategic studies, diplomacy studies, Chinese politics, Russian politics and foreign policy.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#555555;font-family:verdana, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;">Go to <a href="https://www.palgrave.com/us/book/9783319925158">"Palgrave macmillan"</a></span></p>
