    The Illusive Distinction of Cyberwar and Cyberattacks: Exploring the Targeting of Cyberattacks in Armed Conflict2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since previous research has predicted the emergence of cyberwar distinctly from cyberattacks, the targets of cyberattacks in armed conflict should presumably differ from the targets of cyberattacks in the absence of armed conflict. This thesis therefore poses the research question: how does armed conflict affect the targeting of cyberattacks? Hypothesizing that state actors are more likely to target military computer networks in armed conflict than in the absence of armed conflict, a cross-case comparison is performed through a qualitative case study to test this claim. Two cases of armed conflict, Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2015 are compared against two cases in the absence of armed conflict, Estonia in 2007 and Stuxnet in 2010 following the method of structured focus comparison. The findings show that in all four cases, the cyberattacks, disregarding whether armed conflict was present or not, the targets were civilian computer networks of two types: the overall electronic infrastructure which affected media and communications as we all government and financial services, or critical infrastructure. The findings therefore indicate that cyberattacks and their targets are equal in armed conflict and in the absence of it, thus cyberattacks should be understood as a means of influence.

    Violence against LGBTIQ+ Individuals in the Syrian Arab Republic2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis is a qualitative, small-n, empirically driven comparative study that examines the relationship between rebel group ideology and targeted violence against the LGBTIQ+ community. Two rebel groups in the Syrian Arab Republic, with different ideological beliefs, are examined and compared in relation to their level of violence against LGBTIQ+ individuals. Findings in this study suggest that religious groups are keener to use extreme violence against sexual minorities, and to target them explicitly, but further studies are needed to fully understand this targeting of sexual minorities in armed conflicts.

    Engaging with centralised policy initiatives: the Malta experience2019In: Journal of Educational Administration & History, ISSN 0022-0620, E-ISSN 1478-7431, Vol. 51, no 4, p. 369-380Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past two decades Malta has been witnessing wave after wave of reforms. Whilst official documents speak of the need for more decentralised forms of governance the reality shows otherwise. Data from a series of studies involving school leaders show that they still feel that a top-down approach is being adopted leaving limited space for distributed forms of governance. The issue of power and control remains a bone of contention with the centre identified as still determining college/school policies. In fact, what is being experienced can be described as policy-mandated collegiality. This paper presents findings of one such study. This study highlights the concern that heads feel towards the way reforms are being introduced and implemented; the constant reference to work overload and stress, the need for greater support at the personal and collective level, and the need to start letting go so that schools can take the initiative.

    Violent Boyhoods, Masculine Honor Ideology, and Political Violence: Survey Findings From Thailand2021In: Journal of Interpersonal Violence, ISSN 0886-2605, E-ISSN 1552-6518, Vol. 36, no 15-16, p. 7136-7160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history, those who have participated in political violence have predominantly been male young adults. At the same time, we know that most young men will not use violence for political protest. So what distinguishes those who do from those who do not? In this article, we link psychological research on the intergenerational effects of violence in the family to violence in the political arena. We ask to what extent experiences of violence as a child are associated with participation in political violence as an adult. Our overarching argument is that family-of-origin violence may not only have serious negative, intergenerational effects on health and well-being but also on future spirals of violence for the individual. Family-of-origin violence may also lead to an increased risk of using violence for political purposes due to the diffusion of violence norms, whereby violence is seen as a just and appropriate response to conflict. We test this claim using micro-level data from the Survey on Gender, Politics, and Violence in Thailand, conducted in 2012-2013. For our analyses, we zoom in on men from a specific cluster sample of the survey: 200 political activist interviewees—100 Red Shirts and 100 Yellow Shirts. The results support our claim. We find that experiences of family violence as a child increase the risk of participating in political violence as an adult among male political activists in Thailand. Our study suggests one imperative policy implication: Violence prevention measures at the individual level—against corporal punishment of children or violence against women—may have critical implications also for decreasing the risk for and prevalence of political violence and armed conflict in society.

    The SDGs in Georgia: An explanatory case study on the roles of humanitarian organisations2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explored how humanitarian organisations have supported Georgia to achieve the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of 2015, in particular the Planet Goals. It has proven difficult for Member States to turn the SDGs into national policy. Middle-income countries face challenges to focus on all goals simultaneously, while balancing economic development needs and environmental protection ambitions. Humanitarian organisations play a prominent role supporting the implementation of the SDGs. Therefore, this dissertation aims to answer the research question: How has humanitarian organisations been effective in supporting the implementation of the SDGs, particularly the Planet Goals, in Georgia?The theoretical backing to the research is based Arhin (2016), who studied humanitarian organisations and SDGs in Ghana. Arhin outlined three main roles of organisations in SDG work namely, implementation, advocacy, and facilitation. In addition, theories concerning the operational space of organisations as well as the SDGs as a system was used. A conceptual framework was created to guide the data collection and the analysis.The research was conducted as a qualitative case study, through interviews and documents. Nine interviews were conducted, along with a review of external aid reports, Voluntary National Reviews for 2016 and 2020 and the European Union-Georgia Association Agreement. The material was analysed using critical discourse theory, using a programme called ATLAS.ti.The results found that Georgia’s development agenda has an explicit focus on economic growth rather than environmental sustainability. There is a large disparity in society with substantial urban-rural divides. A part of the population needs basic necessities, typically in rural areas, whereas cities are more developed. The European Union-Georgia Association Agreement has had a large influence on the development focus and agenda in Georgia, and the Government prioritises policies to meet the requirements under this agreement to advance its European Union aspirations. The research concluded that there is no organised work towards implementing the SDGs in Georgia. Organisations designing and implementing projects align with the obligations under the European Union Association Agreement, and subsequently align project objectives and impact with the SDGs, as long as there is a natural fit between the set project objectives and the SDGs. Thus, SDGs do not guide the objective setting for projects. There is barely any advocacy of the 2030 Agenda in Georgia. In terms of facilitation, the SDGs are addressed at institutional level, which is somewhat politicised. The adoption of the SDGs can be considered a political manoeuvre to confirm Georgia’s commitment as a member of the global order, whereas the true focus of Georgia’s development agenda focuses on economic growth under the European Union-Georgia Association Agreement.

    On the Use of Bibliometrics for Domain Analysis: A study of the Academic Field of Political Science in Europe2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The academic field of political science in Europe is studied in this thesis which examines the application of bibliometrics for domain analysis. It takes its point of departure in the domain analytic approach outlined by Birger Hjørland and Hanne Albrechtsen, which claims the study of domains as central for information specialists to be able to identify information needs in their fields of practice. Three features of the domain were studied by the use of bibliometric methods. Data was extracted from the Web of Science. Impact Factor was used to select 50 journals from each of the years 1999, 2004 and 2009. Only items published by authors with European addresses were included. Co-word analysis was used to study topics within the discipline and several kinds of citation analyses were conducted to examine citation patterns of the domain. Lastly core journals, authors and works were identified by the use of citation analysis and co-citation maps were drawn for the analyses.Several subfields within the domain, as well as some differences in citation patterns of the subfields, were possible to distinguish. The domain showed to be multifaceted, yet specific European research areas were identified. Some significant changes of the citation patterns were apparent between 1999 and 2009. In 2009 there were more references per article, journal articles were cited to a higher degree, relatively older publications were cited to a greater extent and the most cited journals received a larger share of the total amount of citations.The existence of a specific European domain within political science is discussed as well as the diverse characteristics of the subfields and their implications for the bibliometric methods. Finally suggestions are presented of how bibliometrics can be used for domain analysis within library and information science as well as by information service institutions.This paper is a two years master’s thesis in Library and Information Science.

    Myths in the Russian Collective Memory: The Golden Era of Pre-Revolutionary Russia and the Disaster of 19172018In: Scando-Slavica, ISSN 0080-6765, E-ISSN 1600-082X, Vol. 64, no 1, p. 31-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines shared ideas, values and interpretations of the past in the"collective memory" of the 1917 October Revolution. Employing a qualitativeapproach to examine collective memory "from below," two age cohorts wereinterviewed in three Russian cities from a variety of social groups in 2014–2015. What was revealed was the existence of a strong positive myth aboutthe pre-revolutionary era of 1900–1914, as well as positive references to the current Putin era. Both eras were "positive" in that Russia was/is a "normal European power," "on the rise economically" and "respected by the other powers." In terms of the definitive national trauma, an overwhelming majority viewed the 1917 October Revolution as a break or rupture in Russian history that caused appalling destruction. This view of 1917 as catastrophic leads tocertain key "lessons": that revolutionary change is inherently destructive and wasteful and that external forces had (and have) a vested interest in weakening Russia from without whenever she is at her most vulnerable. Overall, at the heart of myths over 1917 we find a central occupation with the threat of disintegration and a yearning for stability and normality, highlighting how collective memory interacts with political values and social identity.

    Information Overload and the Growing Infosphere: A Comparison of the Opinions and Experiences of Information Specialists and General Academics on the Topic of Information Overload2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Information overload is a popular term intimately associated with the information society in which we are now thought to live. This two-year master’s thesis explores perceptions and experiences of this phenomenon through a quantitative study of two groups of academics; on the one hand, academically active information specialists, and on the other, active academics in general.

    The theoretical framework for this study is based on Orrin E. Klapp’s notion of ‘meaning lag’ and Luciano Floridi’s concept of ‘infosphere’, to provide a context for discussing how and why information overload might develop. The relationship between information overload and ‘information literacy’ is another important point explored as part of this discussion.

    An international, web-based survey directed at information specialists as well as general academics reveals that information overload is a very common experience for people active in academic settings. A number of statistics are presented regarding how, when and where information overload is usually experienced, as well as the more general information habits and perceptions of the information environment that these groups display. After comparing the two examined groups, the thesis concludes that there are, in fact, no major differences in how these groups perceive and experience information overload and their surrounding information environment. Having an academic interest and specialty in information science is thus not indicative of being able to avoid or even think very differently about information overload. Finally, some relevant research directions are proposed.

    Conflicting Frames: A Comparative Analysis of General and Diasporic Media Framing of Violent Conflict in the Diaspora's Homeland2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Despite extensive research into the effects of framing in media, much less is still known about how and why these frames constructed. The field of media framing has also neglected reporting on violent conflict, instead focusing on different types of non-violent conflict, especially in terms of frame analysis. This study aims to expand on framing theory by studying the framing of diaspora-specific media in reporting on violent homeland conflict, in comparison with general media in the diaspora’s country of residence. Despite arguments that diasporic media negatively impact integration, further polarisation or contribute to conflict recreation in the country of residence, there has been little research into the reporting by diasporic media. In this thesis, I argue that diasporic and general media will differ in their framing of violent conflict in the diaspora’s homeland because of two factors: (1) the expected levels of interest and knowledge among the medium’s target audience and (2) the knowledge and objectives of the journalists producing the reporting. Through in-depth analysis of a collection of articles of the New York Times and the Armenian Mirror-Spectator on the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War, I find that there are indeed considerable differences between the framing of the two news media. Diasporic media use more thematic framing in their reporting, whereas general media use more episodic framing in their reporting on the conflict. Furthermore, the framing by diasporic media aligns with central (conflict) narratives of the diaspora’s collective memory, whereas general media present a mix of different conflict perspectives. Finally, this analysis showcases some of the issues of applying concepts derived from the framing of non-violent contexts to violent conflict settings. These findings further the understanding of both the reporting of diasporic media, relative to the reporting by general media, and the knowledge on the types of framing used in reporting on violent conflict, and what drives the construction of such frames. This study also highlights the importance of the consideration of violent conflict in the study of framing, and the need for further research into framing of violent conflict.

    Does Inclusion Lead to More Successful Laws?: A Case Study of the Domestic Violence Act in Uganda2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is based on a field study conducted in Uganda in the fall of 2015. The study is analyzing at the process behind the Domestic Violence Act, a law that came in to place in 2010, and try to scrutinize it by using the inclusive democracy theory of Iris Marion Young. In the study numerous interviews with several women’s organizations, as well as representatives for the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development and local police officers are presented.  

    The study aims at getting a better understanding of what is necessary to create successful laws to prevent violence against women. The main objective is to answer the question how inclusion, or the lack of it, can influence the success of legal norms and laws regarding violence against women.

    The result of this study shows that inclusion could play a role in a law’s success. However inclusion is not enough, other factors such as allocating enough money in the budget together with educating both the public and the officials that are enforcing the law, are also of great importance for a law’s success. Yet, this study also shows that a greater inclusion could affect these factors in a positive way, however inclusion alone is most likely not sufficient for creating a successful law

    A Labour Regime Perspective on Workforce Formation in Nordic Tourism: Exploring National Tourism Policy and Strategy Documents2020In: Tourism Employment in Nordic Countries: Trends, Practices, and Opportunities / [ed] Andreas Walmsley, Kajsa Åberg, Petra Blinnikka, Gunnar Thór Jóhannesson, Palgrave Macmillan, 2020, p. 349-373Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter adopts a public policy perspective to tourism workforce formation in Finland, Norway and Sweden. The qualitative content analysis of national tourism strategy, planning and policy documents reveals that aspired labour regimes are predominantly characterised by mobility, flexibility and segmentation. While these practices ensure a competitive operational environment, satisfy seasonal employee demand and provide means for states to integrate immigrants into the labour market, negative societal consequences including precariousness, low-quality employment and inequality arise as well. Although all examined documents advocate sustainable production and consumption for Nordic tourism, workforce is essentially not included in sustainability discourses and initiatives.

    Celebrating 30 years louder than hell: exploring commercial and social ‘Host Event Zone’ developments of the heavy metal festival Wacken Open Air2022In: Annals of Leisure Research, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 116-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although respective research has proliferated, little attention has been given to the processual nature of festivals. By drawing upon the concept of host event zones, we examine how different spectators perceive the development of the heavy metal festival Wacken Open Air (WOA) with respect to the dynamics between the festival as a temporary place in which visitors enjoy spectacle and ritual, a commercial site and the everyday living space of local inhabitants. WOA has grown in 30 years from an initiative by a few friends for devoted metal fans into an internationally renowned music mega-event. WOA represents a consumption mediated ‘peaceful utopia’ where festivalgoers find social meaningfulness in neo-tribes. However, the accelerating mainstream appeal of Wacken Open Air for a non-metal fan audience, which significantly spurt by the media, challenges both regular attendees’ experience of this idealized space and the relationship between the host community and the festival.

    Att sätta Stockholm på kartan: en diskursanalytisk undersökning av debatten kring tillbyggnaden av Stockholms stadsbibliotek2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the thesis is to investigate the status of the public library field in contemporary society. This is realized through an analysis of the debate concerning the addition to the Stockholm city library as it unfolded in two morning papers.Critical discourse analysis is used as theoretical basis, combined with social field theory. The status of the public library field is elaborated on in relation to the field of architecture.41 texts, either debate articles or columns, constitute the source material. The critical discourse analytic approach is methodologically complemented with a method inspired by Paul Ricoeur's ”Hermeneutics of Suspicion”, in order to allow analysis of a wider source material.The analysis indicates that the public library field enjoys relatively low status compared to other social fields. Voices from the field are largely missing in the debate, and identities attributed to actors within the public library field by actors from other fields are negative. Notions, viewpoints and perspectives originating from the field of architecture predominates in the debate, discriminating those of the public library field, which are sparsely occurring and unelaborated. No significant impact on language usage, and consequently ideas and representations, across field borders is discernible, leading to the conclusion that no change in field relationships is imminent. It is argued that the absence of participation partly can be seen as a consequence of a better predisposition among actors within the architecture field to act in a mass media environment. A suggestion is made that the education relevant to actors within the public library field should convey an orientation to mass media environments, thus promoting the ability to participate in public debates. If the failure to appear in the public debate among public library field actors persists, there is risk that the field’s status will be further undermined.The thesis is a two years master's thesis.

    Taking action before the violence: why intergovernmental organizations launch preventive deployment at different frequencies2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about how the construction of an organization has an impact on how frequent the use of preventive actions is. It starts off with an explanation of previous research on the subject, as well as milestones in definitions and other areas. It goes on to explain how this particular research will be useful for future researchers and people who want to be able to predict to what the organizations react to. Then is an explanation of the research method, which follows the design of the Structured Focused Comparison. The cases, the African Union and the United Nations, are explained. The research tells us about how the organizations’ reacted to information about protests in Burundi in 2015. The conclusions drawn are that the use of systematic alerts to potential conflicts, and a lack of veto-rights in the security council leads to more frequent deployments of preventive actions.

    Beyond the Chaos: Natural Hazards and their impact on Violence against Civilians2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the impact of natural hazards on level of violence against civilians in countries experiencing armed conflict. While the literature on violence against civilians has made substantial progress, especially in showing how such violence can serve strategic purposes, gaps remain in identifying factors that influence shifts in such strategies. Natural hazards are, as abrupt shocks, one factor that should be considered as a cause but is overlooked. By combining data from the EM-DAT database created by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters and the Georeferenced Event Dataset from Uppsala University, this study employs a zero-inflated negative binomial model to analyse the effects of natural hazards during the emergency and early recovery phases. The findings indicate a slight but significant decrease in violence in the immediate aftermath which contrary to expectations continues in the long term phase. The decrease should be understood as a continuation of violence rather than a cessation of it. These results underscore the need for cooperation between the two fields, to better assist civilians in need.

    From Condemnation to Intervention: An Inquiry into the Relation between Different United Nations Policies2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The field of peace and conflict studies is rich in articles analysing the conditions under which theUnited Nations decides to conduct peace operations. To the best of my knowledge, however, littleof these studies have tried to understand whether alternative policies, such as naming and shaming,exert influence on the initiation of UN interventions. This study has attempted to partly fill thisgap by analysing the relationship between the United Nations’ naming and shaming practices andUnited Nations peace operations following one-sided violence. It is argued that naming andshaming is low in costs, risks, and contestation, compared to peace operations. For both practices,the effects on levels of one-sided violence have been found to be mixed. From these points, theexpectation is formed that naming and shaming practices are conducted prior to interventions.Following this, one could expect that naming and shaming, together with high levels of one-sidedviolence, increases the likelihood of United Nations peace operations. When statistically analysingdata on all months and countries in which internal armed conflict occurred between 1995 and 2014,the effect has been found that higher levels of one-sided violence increase the likelihood of peaceoperations, which corresponds to findings from previous research. No evidence has been found forthe expectation that naming and shaming affects peace operations, or for the interaction betweennaming and shaming and one-sided violence on the likelihood of interventions. In the additionalanalysis, naming and shaming does seem to reduce levels of one-sided violence, but no furtherevidence has been found for the posed temporal effects. These results are likely due tomethodological challenges faced throughout this study. Still, this study raises important questionsabout a potential temporal relationship and suggests several follow-up studies that could gaininsight into these questions.

    In the Pursuit of Ending Cycles of Violence: An Exploration into the Critical Role Local Agency plays for Women Peacebuilders2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Peacebuilding projects continue to fall short in reaching their full potential. In order to find more effective approaches to ending cycles of violence locally driven peacebuilding projects are become increasingly popular. Despite the growing practical interest towards this approach, very little is known about the conditions around how to ensure local peacebuilders have what they need for this to occur, and in particular for domestic women peacebuilders. Research is showing in order to build durable peace women are a vital group to meaningfully include, however, they continue to be marginalized, left out all together and or given little agency in  peacebuilding work. This thesis contributes to this understudied field by exploring how partnership structures between international peacebuilding actors (IPAs) and domestic women peacebuilders (DWPBs) can affect the level of agency a DWPB has to develop and implement projects that will address most with her local conflict and cultural needs. I conduct a case study analysis of two individual DWPBs, in order to test a theoretical argument linking more equitable partnership structure between IPAs and DWPBs with a DWPBs higher level of agency. The empirical finding give support to the hypotheses tested, as the structure of relationships appears to affect the level of agency a DWPB does have when implementing a peacebuilding project. However, the empirical analysis also points towards other factors that potentially can possibly influence a DWPB’s level of agency.

    The Bulgarian Elections: the Rise of Banal Nationalism and Consolidation of the Far-Right Nationalists2021Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The April 2021 Bulgarian Parliamentary elections showed a nationalist shift in the political landscape. There has been a rise in more banal forms of nationalist participation represented by the new Ima Takuv Narod party while the more ultra-nationalist formations such as IMRO and NFSB seek consolidation for the next round of elections in July.

    Transformation of Bulgarian 1990s Print Media Cultures: Technology, Cultural Representations, Piracy, and Identity Formation on a Crossroad between the East and the West2023In: TMG Journal for Media History, ISSN 1387-649X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 1-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article investigates the transformation of Bulgaria’s print media culture in the 1990s, a period of profound political, economic, social, and cultural change in Eastern Europe. The paper’s contribution is two-fold. Firstly, it focuses on the convergence of selected Bulgarian newspapers with established and emerging media formats alongside Bulgaria’s position between the East and the West. Secondly, the representations of and discourses about technology during the transition period are analysed and their link with identity formation is explored. I compare two tabloids (Trud and 24 Chassa) with two business-focused broadsheets (Cash and Capital) issued in 1997. Adopting a non-Western perspective by focusing on a case of transitional Eastern Europe, the article offers a snapshot and a reflection on the cultural representations of technologies, discursive identity construction, and media practices of the 1990s. The emergence of the free market and the influx of electronics in Bulgaria affected identity formation as technologies related to notions of modernity, Europeanness, globalisation, entertainment, power, gender, and social status.

    On becoming an organic farmer2.14.0.0: An autoethnographic reflection2.14.0.02024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores how the Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) network may constitute a form of sustainable tourism on the Baltic Island of Gotland, Sweden. To do this, I narrate my own personal journey as a WWOOF volunteer trying to find my way as an organic farmer, in an autoethnographic account of my experience at Tjeldervik Gård during the spring and summer of 2023. In the account, I make observations concerning economic, environmental, and social/cultural sustainability, focusing especially on my interpretations. In this way, I hope to shed more light on WWOOF from the perspective of sustainable tourism studies, and to contribute by sharing one of few first-hand accounts as a WWOOF volunteer reflecting on more established knowledge.

    Capable Guardians? UN Peacekeeping, Vulnerable Civilians, and Rates of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For decades now the UN has weathered accusations that it has failed in its duty by allowing the scandal of sexual exploitation and abuse [SEA] carried out by peacekeepers to continue under its mandate. While preventative policy has improved and significant progress has been made in the academic literature, there are still gaps in the collective understanding the drivers of SEA. This paper seeks to fill one such gap by exploring the relationship between the presence of vulnerable civilians and the phenomena of SEA. Borrowing from criminological literature, a theory is generated which suggests that greater numbers of vulnerable civilians represent increased access to suitable targets and therefore a greater opportunity to offend. From this, two hypotheses are drawn: that the presence of vulnerable civilians will increase the rate of SEA incidents and that the presence of vulnerable civilians will increase sexual exploitation to a notably greater degree than sexual abuse. Utilising a large-N study of UN peacekeeping missions between 2010 and 2019, this paper seeks to test the hypotheses using both OLS and negative binomial regression models. The outcome of the empirical analysis, while indicating a positive relationship between vulnerable civilians and the occurrence of SEA, are not conclusive enough to confirm the relationship without further testing. While the same is true with regards to sexual exploitation seeing a greater effect than sexual abuse, the results for the second hypothesis reveal a stark dichotomy between the two facets of SEA. This dichotomy is shown to be prevalent across several alternative explanations. For these reasons, further research is called for not only into the effect of vulnerable civilians but also into the extent to which numerous other factors affect sexual exploitation and sexual abuse differently.
