Sunniva Engh: "India's Myanmar policy and the 'Sino-Indian great game'"Sunniva Engh: "India's Myanmar policy and the 'Sino-Indian great game'"<p>​​​​Recent literature has aimed to “deconstruct” the notion of a “Sino-Indian rivalry” in Myanmar. The argument is that China's leverage in Myanmar far outweighs India's, and that the Tatmadaw nevertheless prevents either country's manipulation of Myanmar. In contrast this article argues that the idea of a “Sino-Indian Great Game” still marks the Indian debate, thinking and policy on Myanmar. China's continued rise will remain a main driver behind India's Myanmar policy, and Myanmar will remain geostrategic relevant to India.​<br><br>The article describes the historical legacy of India's relationship with Myanmar, discusses the role of China in Indian Myanmar policies, and examines the effects of Myanmar's democratization process. While the Myanmar playing field has changed, Indian perceptio​ns of a “Sino-Indian Great Game” are lasting.</p><p style="box-sizing:content-box;margin-bottom:1.875em;font-size:16px;line-height:26px;color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/03068374.2015.1130307">​​Last ned artikkelen fra Taylor & Francis' nettsider</a> (Betalingsmur.

Lundestad, Ingrid. 2015. "Turning Foe to Friend? US Objectives in Including Russia in Post-Cold War Euro-Atlantic Security Co-operation". The International History Review, 22 December.Lundestad, Ingrid. 2015. "Turning Foe to Friend? US Objectives in Including Russia in Post-Cold War Euro-Atlantic Security Co-operation". The International History Review, 22 December.<p>​This article scrutinises four moments in the post-Cold War era where the United States engaged to include Russia in Euro-Atlantic security forums: the establishment of the North Atlantic Cooperation Council; Partnership for Peace; Permanent Joint Council; and the NATO-Russia Council. The overall puzzle is: why did consecutive US administrations aim to formalise co-operation between NATO and Russia? Current tensions highlight the issue's significance, yet in the literature, there is no study looking specifically at these episodes of US efforts to integrate Moscow. Building on a broad set of primary sources, this article determines what we can now know of US objectives concerning the role of Russia in Euro-Atlantic co-operation. It concludes that US objectives moved from seeking new and stable relations between former adversaries, to facilitating US objectives in the Euro-Atlantic context with NATO enlargement, to expressing more global interests in confronting emerging crises and challenges, amongst others in the war on terror. Co-operation was limited to where interests were overlapping. Russia would not be placed in a position to influence NATO as an alliance. US officials remained hopeful that co-operation with Russia was possible, and would benefit all. At the same time, decisions would serve US interests should relations sour.</p><p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/07075332.2015.1096806"><strong>Go to Taylor&Francis Online to download the article (limited access)</strong></a></p>
Kronvall, Olof & Magnus Petersson. 2015. "Doctrine and Defence Transformation in Norway and Sweden". Journal of Strategic Studies (special issue)Kronvall, Olof & Magnus Petersson. 2015. "Doctrine and Defence Transformation in Norway and Sweden". Journal of Strategic Studies (special issue)<p>​​In this article Kronvall and Petersson analyse to what degree the three functions of doctrine proposed by Harald Høiback – doctrine as a tool of operations, a tool of education, and a tool of change – have driven defence transformation in two Scandinavian states, Norway and Sweden. They conclude that doctrine, both allied and national, has had some impact on defence transformation in both countries: through the operations in Afghanistan, through education both at the branch level and joint level, and through organizational adaption to (first) the US ‘RMA paradigm’ and (later) to the subsequent ‘COIN paradigm’. However, other factors, such as threat perception and defence spending, have also played an important role. It also remains to be seen whether the changes are ephemeral or of a more permanent nature.</p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/01402390.2015.1115040"><p><strong>To download the article, go to the Taylor&Francis website (limited access)</strong></p></a>
