The Soldier as a Cosmopolitan Security Provider



This chapter analyses the effects generated by the soldier’s use of force as a cosmopolitan agent of the state, which are constrained by the liberal state’s and its military leadership’s strategic and operational decision-making. As a consequence of the strategic and operational constraints put upon the soldier, this chapter identifies a set of five tactical effects, which are the logical consequence of the risk-averse strategic and operational planning discussed in Chapter  6. Therefore, this chapter establishes a theoretical correlation between the ethics of soldier conduct on the tactical level and the strategic as well as operational constraints identified in Chapter  6.
