Special issue released

This month, the editorial team at the European Journal of International Security is pleased to announce the publication of Special Issue 7 (1), ‘Operational experiences, military role conceptions, and their influence on civil-military relations.’ Guest edited by Christoph Harig, Nicole Jenne and Chiara Ruffa, this issue features contributions from diverse perspectives to explore the nature and role of military organizations in a dynamic and changing world. Jenne and Martínez explore domestic military missions in Latin America, whilst Levy explores the deployment of the Israeli Defence Force to combat the coronavirus during 2020–1. Meanwhile, Mukherjee asks how combat missions shape civil-military relations and the military's role conception, taking India as a case study. Explore the latest issue in full.
