Transformation of Values in Officership in the Civil-Military Interface

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftKonferenceartikelForskningpeer review

Since the end of the Cold War traditional values of officership as described by Samuel Huntington and Morris Janowitz and later refined by Charles Moskos have been tested by continuous changes in the global security context and by an increasing influence from public governance standards. The question is how those challenges affect the attitudes of the professional corps of officers toward the concept of officership? It is argued that the emergence of attitudes towards officership is highly complex. Based on discourse studies of performance evaluations of high-level officers from 1989 to 2014 and an analytical concept - modes of coordination, inspired by French pragmatism - it is argued, that the attitudes of high-level officers have changed radically alongside transformations in the surrounding society. It is argued, that the values of officership has changed from patriarchal-industrial values into project-industrial values continuously avoiding market based values.
