Introduction to the Special Issue on Military Sociology: Distinctions and dynamics between military and civilian spheres

Relations between militaries and their host societies is one of the central themes in military sociology. The theme is timely because of the changes in European security policies implemented during this decade. The long process of demilitarisation after the Second World War meant gradual decline in military budgets and disappearance of several conscript armies in Europe. Coincidental growth of welfare regimes, civilian state and the deepening internationalisation weakened the role of the military as a legitimiser of the state. Due to societal and institutional

Boots on the streets: a “policization” of the armed forces as the new normal?

meaningful work and self-consideration, mobile) Assessment Resistance against role convergence During the late 20th century, both organizations were confronted with particular social pressures and three “wicked” problems at the macro-level (Campbell and Campbell 2010 : 15-16): the internationalization of organized drug crime; the proliferation of terrorist groups and a geopolitical fragmentation of formerly integrated societies. Those changes have thus rendered the distinctions between domestic and foreign policy less evident. These convergences between

Challenges for Leading Multinational and Multicultural Military Units

Abstract

The paper deals with the opportunities and challenges which might face a commander leading multinational and multicultural troops, especially in peacekeeping and peace support operations. Peacekeeping missions have had an international character since their beginning. Internationalization of operations provides legitimacy to a mission and greater international support. However the combined operation causes significant challenges, especially for commanders, who have to lead these types of military units. The paper presents the benefits as well as challenges which faces the international leader in multiethnic environment. The author, based on his own experience gained in international deployments, presents his views and suggestions regarding the aspects of commanding multinational and multicultural troops.

War as nothing but a duel: war as an institution and the construction of the Western military profession

sometimes inaccurately understood as a part of Germany’s Sonderweg or “singularity of destructiveness” ( Kramer 2008 ). The concept of military (or the broader strategic) culture too presumes significant national differences. Views of national differences are of course only enhanced by the fact that Western militaries are tightly incorporated within their respective states to the point of becoming just one of its many bureaucracies. Yet, the fact that nationalizing of military establishments has been followed by a parallel process of internationalization is best visible

Contributions on the Determination of the Relationship among Globalization, Sustainable Development and Energy Security

Abstract

The integrated approach to current security issues requires the study of human society by adopting the principle of sustainability for policies to be developed and applied according to economic, social and environmental impacts. The internationalization of economies raises a number of requirements for the application of this principle not only in domestic policies but also in external cooperation relations. Sustainability is thus a catalyst for internal and external political decisions, economic actions and public opinion to promote both new structural, institutional reforms and changes in production and consumption behaviours. The energy resources have permanently and overwhelmingly influenced the evolution of human society and its economic development, representing both a reason for cooperation and confrontation and disputes among the actors of the international system, while also shaping the economy, security, foreign policy and states priorities.

Irregular Warfare And (In)Security In The Horn Of Africa

Abstract

The paper will focus on the transformation of war (associated with phenomena such as human displacement, famine, violence against civilians, and commercialization of military troops) and on the refugee flows and insecurity within refugee camps which amount to humanitarian tragedies. The second chief aim of this paper is to investigate tenets of the extended analytical framework of security and to emphasize the relevance of constructivist and critical security studies. The pivotal line of arguments will revolve around specificities of violent conflict in the Horn of Africa which trigger the need to revisit mainstream approaches on state security by analyzing intra-state (and internationalized) violence and by including types of post-colonial insecurity, food insecurity and environmental degradation. The main underlying research question is: why is human security a valid framework of analysis in the case of irregular warfare in the Horn of Africa?
