Abstract:
This thesis examines the connection between technological change and military privatisation, which includes the privatisation of military assets, as well as the outsourcing of services from the armed forces to the private sector. The main argument is that increasing technological complexity of military equipment in the information age has led to an increasing reliance of the armed forces on private companies in respect to maintaining, managing, and even operating military equipment and networks. The armed forces lack already the competence and the resources for carrying out many important tasks including research, training, and operational support services.
