Galulas influence on the Swedish mission in Afghanistan (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den 7 oktober 2001 anföll en koalition ledd av USA, Afghanistan för att döda eller tillfångata ledare och medlemmar av terrornätverket Al-Qaeda som skyddades av talibanregimen som styrde i landet. Sedan 2006 har Sverige lett återuppbygnadsprojektet vid PRT Mazar-e Sharif. En av de mest inflytelserika teoretikerna inom upprorsbekämpning (COIN) är den franske officeren David Galula som i mitten av 1900-talet formulerade sin teori om upprorsbekämpning och vikten av att skaffa sig civilbefolkningens stöd för att genomföra en lyckad COIN-operation. Studien använder sig av Galulas teori om COIN och hans åtta punkter som analysverktyg vid studien om den svenska insatsen i Afghanistan. Av studien framgår att den svenska insatsen skiljer sig mot Galulas teori på flera punkter. Studien visar att en av orsakerna kan vara att Sverige inte genomför COIN-operationen själv utan som en del av ISAF.

Abstract [en]

On the 7th October 2001, a coalition led by the USA attacked Afghanistan in in order to killor capture leaders and members of the terror network Al-Queda which were under theprotection of the Taliban regime who at the time controlled Afghanistan. Sweden has beenin charge of the reconstruction program in Mazar-e Sharif since 2006.One of the most influential theorist with in the field of counterinsurgency (COIN) is theFrench army officer David Galula who formed his theory for counterinsurgency in the mid-20th century. In his theory Galula argued that the support of the local population was thekey to a successful COIN-campaign.This study uses Galulas eight points as a mean to analyze the Swedish involvement inAfghanistan.The study show that the Swedish involvement differs on several counts from Galulas theory.The study show that one possible explanation could be that Sweden isn’t preforming aCOIN-campaign alone but as a part of ISAF.
