Hsiung, Christopher Weidacher. 2016. "China and Arctic energy: drivers and limitations." Polar Journal, online 26 OctoberHsiung, Christopher Weidacher. 2016. "China and Arctic energy: drivers and limitations." Polar Journal, online 26 October<p>​​​China's growing demand for oil and gas is forcing the country to look abroad to secure new sources of imports. The Arctic region could function as such a source, and Chinese oil companies have already started to engage in oil and gas exploration and production there. </p><p>The literature has tended to take this as evidence that China will become an increasingly active and important player in Arctic oil and gas resource developments. This article, however, argues that China's Arctic oil and gas interests are in fact modest. Domestic views on Chinese involvement in Arctic gas and resource development have been mixed and cautious, indicating a wait-and-see approach. There have been few concrete Chinese investments, further indicating limited interest. Only the onshore Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic can be characterised as substantial Chinese participation. </p><p>The challenges and high costs of oil and gas production in the Arctic, China's increased import options, the current economic slowdown in China and security developments in the Arctic region all impact China's motivations and possibilities for participation in the development of Arctic energy resources.</p><a href="https://www.fni.no/publications/china-and-arctic-energy-drivers-and-limitations-article1143-290.html" target="_blank"><p>The article is part of a project run by ​​The Fridtjof Nansen Institute.

Allers, Robin. 2016. "The framework nation: can Germany lead on security?" International Affairs 92 (5)Allers, Robin. 2016. "The framework nation: can Germany lead on security?" International Affairs 92 (5)<p class="forsvaretElement-p">​​Can Germany lead on security? This article aims to address this question by looking at recent German contributions to European defence cooperation. In 2013 Germany introduced the Framework Nations Concept (FNC) as a systematic and structured approach towards joint capability development. The concept relies on the idea that bigger nations take the overall responsibility for coordinating the contributions of smaller partners in a capability package. </p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">The framework nation model as such is not new but the initiative has been welcomed as a potential game changer in European defence cooperation and as confirmation of Germany's commitment to NATO. In light of the Ukraine crisis, measures to adapt NATO and to strengthen the European pillar of the alliance have become more urgent. Allies and partners increasingly want Germany to extend its role as Europe's dominant economic and financial power to matters of security and defence. </p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">The framework nation model allows Germany to take international responsibility, while avoiding debates about leadership and hegemony. Moreover, as a framework nation, Germany can advance flexible cooperation among a smaller number of allies without undermining its commitment to multilateralism. But the FNC initiative also raises further questions: what is the added value of the framework nation model compared to similar formats; what should be the place of smaller groupings in the evolving Euro-Atlantic security architecture; and how reliable is Germany in the role of a lead nation?</p><p><a href="https://www.chathamhouse.org/publication/ia/framework-nation-can-germany-lead-security#sthash.98ikRXKm.dpuf">Read the article on Chatham House's website.

Haaland, Torunn. 2016. "The Limits to Learning in Military Operations. Bottom-up Adaptation in the Norwegian Army in Northern Afghanistan, 2007–2012". Journal of Strategic Studies, online 11 JulyHaaland, Torunn. 2016. "The Limits to Learning in Military Operations. Bottom-up Adaptation in the Norwegian Army in Northern Afghanistan, 2007–2012". Journal of Strategic Studies, online 11 July<p>​This article – based on interviews with Norwegian Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) commanders and the lessons-learned database of the Norwegian Armed Forces – argues that what appear to be an inability or unwillingness to learn and adapt in war may have other explanations. The ambiguity of experiences makes lessons contested, contradictory, and fluid interpretations of confusing events. Consequently, they do not provide unequivocal guidance for adaptation. Even when lessons learned are fairly clear and agreed upon, adaptation does not automatically follow, as force autonomy may be quite limited, at least for small states in coalition operations conducted in partnership with indigenous forces.</p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:1.875em;line-height:26px;font-size:16px;box-sizing:content-box;color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">​<a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/JWQVPtxDBBz4ZrVqQIa3/full" target="_blank" style="color:#877040;text-decoration:underline;box-sizing:content-box;transition:0.3s;background:transparent;">To read the article, go to the Journal of Strategic Studies website</a>. </p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:1.875em;line-height:26px;font-size:16px;box-sizing:content-box;color:#333333;font-family:proximanova, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">Kontakt Forsvarets høgskolens bibliotek hvis du mangler tilgang: <a href="mailto:bibl@fhs.mil.no" style="color:#877040;text-decoration:underline;box-sizing:content-box;transition:0.3s;background:transparent;">bibl@fhs.mil.no</a>​</p>
