The Return to Patriotic Education in Post-Soviet Russia: How, When, and Why the Russian Military Engaged in Civilian Nation Building. Journal of Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society. Vol. 5, No. 1 (2019)<p>​This article examines the military origins of the Russian State Program of Patriotic Education. It documents how the policy was incubated within the Ministry of Defense and had found much of its form and content before Vladimir Putin became Russia’s president. To a degree often forgotten, patriotic education was shaped by circumstances of crisis and social destabilization. In response to failed nation building and rising concerns over youth behavior, military values and aesthetics were taken up as a means to cure social ills and moral vices and to counter the influx of western values. The military actors involved sought not only to increase the prestige of military service. Equally important was the fact that patriotic education served as a form of social outreach, based on a traditionalist worldview. Soviet and Russian soldiers were seen as important role models for the young, and the Armed Forces as a bearer of historical continuity and “Russianness.” Thus, already before Putin’s presidency, the regime invited the military into the heart of civilian affairs, presenting military traditionalism with a stronghold within the domain of official nation building. Under Putin, too, patriotic education policies continue to bear the strong imprint of their origins in crisis and failed nation building in the 1990s.<br></p>

Defeating TTIP: the French and German parliaments compared”. Journal of Transatlantic Studies (JTS) 2019, september, 1-18.<p class="forsvaretElement-p">​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. 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.<br></p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Read the article from <a href="https://link.springer.com/article/10.1057/s42738-019-00029-7">Springer Link: Journal of Transatlantic Studies</a><br></p>

Arctic counterterrorism: can Arctic cooperation overcome its most divisive challenge yet? The Polar Journal. <p>​<span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">This article examines the potential for international cooperation in Arctic counterterrorism. Focus is on cooperation involving Russia and its immediate Arctic neighbours, the United States and Norway. The article discusses the evolution of hard security cooperation in the Arctic through freezes and thaws in international relations. It further discusses cooperation between Russia and NATO in the global war on terror, and how this common cause turned into a core for contention. The article draws attention to two fundamental and critical impediments to international cooperation in Arctic counterterrorism: aversion to information sharing and the problem of labelling terrorists. Throughout its discussions, the article illustrates lingering trust issues between Russia and its Western neighbours. This mistrust underscores challenges to hard security cooperation among the Arctic states in general, and to cooperation in the highly politicised field of counterterrorism in particular.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">Read the article in <a href="https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/2154896X.2019.1618550?scroll=top&needAccess=true">The Polar Journal</a></span></p>
