Defence and society
The purpose of the framework project is to contribute with insights and knowledge about how a country's armed forces and society affect each other and cooperate within the total defense. Threats to society and the interaction between defense and society are thus the framework project's overall focus area.
The research is conducted in three sub-projects: 1) Gender mainstreaming in the Swedish Armed Forces, 2) From Resilience to Resistance and 3) Hybrid warfare and total defense in the gray zone. In all sub-projects, attention is paid to issues concerning gender equality,women, peace and war.
