About Joakim Berndtsson

I currently work as Senior Lecturer here at the School of Global Studies. Besides my work as a teacher and researcher, I am also Deputy Head of Department for Education. I finished my PhD in 2009. During my undergraduate studies, I majored in International Relations and Political Science. I also hold a Master degree in English Literature.

Areas of interest
The privatisation of war and security, security studies, the history of state formation, civil-military relations, the transformation of war, UN peacekeeping. The doctoral dissertation from 2009 was entitled: The Privatisation of Security and State Control of Force: Changes, Challenges and the Case of Iraq.

Abstract/full text


Current research

Besides my main field of research, which focuses on different aspects of private security, I am involved in a national research programme on Information Security, funded by the Swedish Contingencies Agency (MSB). I also work on a project focusing on public opinion of the Swedish Armed Forces.

Teaching and tutoring
I mainly teach International Relations and themes related to peace, war and security. I also lecture on the programs in Global Studies as well as other courses on MA level. In terms of tutoring and supervision, I am interested in all aspects of security privatisation, but also more broadly on topics related to international security, war and warfare, peacekeeping and civil-military relations.
