influencing factors ( Jøsok et al. 2016 ). Among these, overcoming potentially harmful influences of inappropriate reliance on intuition due to lack of either reliable available information or information-processing capacity is part of the new training concepts developed by the Norwegian Defense Cyber Academy (NDCA). One correlate of cognitive performance that can be subject to training and leadership is self-efficacy. Perceived self-efficacy is the belief in one’s competence and abilities to overcome a situation or task ( Luszczynska et al. 2005 ). Bandura (1997

Mjaaland 2019b on the notion of “formatting”). Human Rights and the Axial Age Hans Joas takes the idea of an “Axial Age”, first presented by Karl Jaspers in 1949, as a key to understanding the historical development of sacralization and desacralization. The idea is controversial but supported by sociologists

This, in turn, put enormous pressure on politicians and the government to create legal instruments that promised quick solutions. The result of this pressure was indeed a cascade of measures, not, however, in the area of drug policy, as might have been expected, but rather in laws governing foreign nationals, beginning with the Federal Act on Coercive Measures mentioned above In particular, the law was to introduce four new articles: 13a, which states that, during the
