  1. 1. Re-presenting the West : NATO’s Security Discourse after the End of the Cold War

    Author : Andreas Behnke; Jens Bartelson; Iver Neumann; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATO; security; discourse; nomos; identity; West; Political science; Statsvetenskap; Political Science; statsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is a critical investigation into the discursive processes through which the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) has re-produced a geopolitical order, or nomos, after the end of the Cold War and the demise of its constitutive enemy, the Soviet Union. The thesis examines both the ontological as well as the epistemological aspects of these processes. READ MORE

    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; wargaming; wargame; instructor; gamification; game-based learning; buy-in; officer education; officer cadet; Sandhurst; West Point; UK; USA; Sweden; Germany; Japan; game director; krigsspel; utbildningsspel; militär utbildning; officersutbildning; Sverige; USA; Storbritannien; Tyskland; Japan; spelbaserat lärande; brädspel; spel; simulering; Försvarshögskolan; instruktör; Krigsvetenskap; Krigsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Wargaming has been part of military curricula for about 200 years since the introduction of Kriegsspiel, but it is still something of an art form. This thesis attempts to theorise the practice of military educational wargaming, and specifically to explore why such wargaming takes the form it does. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical Modelling and Mechanical Studies on a Point Absorber Type Wave Energy Converter

    Author : Yue Hong; Rafael Waters; Mikael Eriksson; Cecilia Boström; Jørgen Hals Todalshaug; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : linear generator; point absorber; numerical modelling; power production; optimal damping; Teknisk fysik; Engineering Science;

    Abstract : Oceans cover two thirds of the Earth’s surface and the energy potential of ocean waves as a renewable energy source is huge. It would therefore be a tremendous achievement if the vast mechanical energy in waves was converted into a form of energy that could be used successfully by society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ocean circulation in the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica

    Author : Ola Kalén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ocean; currents; icebergs; remote sensing; ocean model;

    Abstract : The increase of mass loss from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is a significant contribution to global sea level rise. The most rapid changes are occurring in the Amundsen Sea area, where the thinning of the floating glaciers is assumed to be driven by the ocean. READ MORE
