Abstract [en]

Abstract: The objective with this thesis is to create a deeper understanding of Hybrid Warfare and through that support the Swedish Armed Forces with encompassing their perspective. The thesis is based on a hermeneutic paradigm, an inductive approach and a qualitative method, which is inspired by Grounded Theory. The data collection in this study has been conducted through semi-structured qualitative interviews of key personnel and decision makers at the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarter. We have used the two theories “Modern Warfare in War and Peace” and “Social Movement Approach” in order to obtain scientifically proof for our result. The main conclusion of this study is that Hybrid Warfare is the modern war. It is an epithet that is used to explain the characteristics in the type of Modern Warfare that we currently are facing. The other conclusions in this study is that Hybrid Warfare is a “national all of government comprehensive concept”, and a proactive concept that requires a tailor fitted approach. Hybrid Warfare is a comprehensive approach based on a Total War strategy that is used in order to achieve a state actors political aims and objectives. However it is a long-term tailor fit “all of government” concept and not a military concept. This concept is based on a proactive approach, which includes a long-term shaping of the environment, distort the situation awareness and peoples perception locally in the conflict area and globally on the world arena. The purpose with the shaping of the environment is to create legitimacy for their activities in a way that reduces the risk for sanctions and international involvement. Hybrid Warfare includes the use of social movements in order to affect and in-stabilize a state. By using social movements state actors can deny their involvement in the conflict. Hybrid Warfare is also hybrid in its nature and is based on a asymmetric approach where state and non-state resources are used in a way that manipulate the boundary between peace and war in a way makes conventional military power become obsolete. We have as an outcome of this study developed a tentative theory of Hybrid Warfare. In comparison to Hybrid War, Hybrid Threats is a latent targeting method that is used within the frames of a hybrid approach
