  1. 1. Operational Military Violence : A Cartography of Bureaucratic Minds and Practices

    Author : Anders Malm; Marie Demker; Dan Öberg; Annika Bergman-Rosamond; Försvarshögskolan; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; military violence; bureaucratisation; operational level; targeting; military masculinity; Krigsvetenskap; Krigsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Western use of military violence is becoming increasingly centralised, partly through the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or more commonly referred to as “drones” in the literature). Drone technology allows control and command of military operations to be put under one roof, and as military organisations traditionally have a close dependence on technological developments, procedures and regulations for centralised command and control have developed in close concert with advances in drone technology.

    Abstract : In response to technological advances, especially in the field of information and communication technology (ICT), the so called revolution in military affairs (RMA) and later the concept of network-centric warfare (NCW) emerged as a theory to further utilize technology for military command and control (C2). Advocates of the Swedish ROLF 2010-vision and the concept of NCW have made claims and assumptions that future technology will improve mission effectiveness by, for example, increasing the understanding of a current situation and its development, the speed of command, and providing means to utilize more efficient forms of organizations.
