Hybridkrigföringens fördelar: en fallstudie av en hybrid aktör

Abstract [en]

There has been a lot of studies on Hybrid Warfare. The purpose of these studies has been to define Hybrid Warfare, or to see if a war could be called Hybrid or not. One thing that has been missing, is a study on what the advantages of using Hybrid Warfare could be. The aim of this study is to examine the advantages of using Hybrid Warfare. To make this possible, we must assume that the actor is Hybrid, and then examine how they could benefit from it. This study uses Frank G. Hoffman’s theory and definition of Hybrid Warfare.

 

The research design will be a case study, where the Norwegian resistance and the Allied forces are a hybrid actor. By using a qualitative method, the benefits of Hybrid Warfare in different operations can be analysed and discussed.

 

The advantage for an actor to utilize hybrid warfare is that it has a wider range of methods to choose from. The actor still utilizes the benefits of combined weapons and various methods of intelligence acquisition. But at the same time, it can carry out irregular actions without the moral limitations which conventional warfare entails.
