About this book
International conflict resolution increasingly involves the use of non-military power
and non-kinetic capabilities alongside military capabilities in the face of hybrid threats.
In this book, counter-measures to those threats are addressed by academics with both
practical and theoretical experience and knowledge, providing strategic and operational
insights into non-kinetic conflict resolution and on the use of power to influence, affect,
deter or coerce states and non-state actors.
This volume in the NL ARMS series deals with the non-kinetic capabilities to address
international crises and conflicts and as always views matters from a global perspective.
Included are chapters on the promise, practice and challenges of non-kinetic instruments
of power, the instrumentality of soft power, information as a power instrument
and manoeuvring in the information environment, Russia's use of deception and
misinformation in conflict, applying counter-marketing techniques to fight ISIL, using
statistics to profile terrorists, and employing tools such as Actor and Audience Analysis.
Such diverse subjects as lawfare, the Law of Armed Conflict rules for non-kinetic cyber
attacks, navigation warfare, GPS-spoofing, maritime interception operations, and
finally, as a prerequisite, innovative ways for intelligence collection in UN Peacekeeping
in Mali come up for discussion.
The book will provide both professionals such as (foreign) policy makers and those
active in the military services, academics at a master level and those with an interest
in military law and the law of armed conflict with useful and up-to-date insights into
the widerange of subjects that are contained within it.
Paul A.L. Ducheine and Frans P.B. Osinga are General Officers and full professors at the
Faculty of Military Sciences of the Netherlands Defence Academy in Breda, The Netherlands.
