    The Swedish Reserve Officer: Filling Vacancies or Using Competences2011In: Armed forces and society, ISSN 0095-327X, E-ISSN 1556-0848, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 284-300Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract The aim of this study is to examine the reserve force’s role in and contribution to the new Swedish expeditionary armed forces. Survey data were obtained from 418 reservists. The results show that reserve officers are well educated and hold high positions in the civil society. According to the reserve officers themselves, the Armed Forces do not ask for their nonmilitary competence. The discontent with this situation is greater among the younger reservists as opposed to the older ones. Four different opinions on the need for the reserve officers are suggested. First, reserve officers are requested to fill vacancies, that is, a volume regulator. Second, the reserve officers are needed because they have unique competences other than military that are used by the armed forces. Third, reserve officers are needed from an economic point of view. Finally, reserve officers contribute to the civil–military relationship. However, when using a framework intended for regular officers, the contribution of the reserve officers’ civil professional competence has not been recognized.

    Sociology at Military Academies: The Swedish Case2008In: Armed forces and society, ISSN 0095-327X, E-ISSN 1556-0848, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 91-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper illustrates the role of sociology at the Sweden military academies. In Finding a suitable balance between theoretical and practical education seems to have been a major thread through Swedish officer education from the eighteenth century to the present day. The emphasis has been on education that is closely linked to the military war positions, with extensive elements of combat planning and carrying out of military operations. But as tasks have changed, areas such as leadership and organizations have become more important and the positions of sociological theories and perspective have gradually increased.  The belief put forward here is that the demand för sociology eill increase for two reasons: the current struggle to make Swedish officer education more university-like and, more important, the need for sociological knowledge yhat will grow the more the Defence Forces engagement will be engaged in the international arena.
