New article on Hybrid Threats and Hybrd Warfare

Résumé
Security challenges arising from hybrid threats and hybrid warfare, HT&HW, are today high on the security agenda not only in Sweden but across the globe. Despite the attention and the growing body of studies on the subject, there is a lack of research bringing attention to how these challenges can be addressed. This article contributes to such an approach by sharing the findings of a project that brings together practitioners and scholarly perspectives on this subject spanning the threats themselves as well as the tools and means to counter them. The article outlines the Western response to hybrid threats and hybrid warfare. It is argued that there is no single response to HT&HW, nor to building resilience. HT&HW needs to be addressed through a comprehensive, all-inclusive approach. Finally, the article outlines how we address these challenges in practice.

Scouting for staff-ride in the Ardennes

This week I scouted and planned for a forthcoming staff ride in the Ardennes to be conducted next spring for a course on the Higher Joint Command and Staff Programme at the Swedish Defence University. It was great to be back after two years on zoom and I am very much looking forward to next spring when we (hopefully) can conduct the course as it is supposed to be conducted.

As always it was rainier than the pictures suggest…

Lecture for War Studies Basic Course in Staff Duties and Tactics

Today I gave a lecture on Grey Zone problems for reserve officers and officers with special competence within the Swedish Defence University’s executive education.

It was great to be back IRL on Campus and discuss the Grey Zone and problems related to hybrid threats and warfare with our very skilled students.
