While doing so it covers three main subjects–the role of the military in nation-building, contemporary challenges, and defence reforms. This covers a wide range of issues, from the military’s historical role–in wars and domestic counter-insurgencies, current threats, and missions to preparing for the future. In the penultimate section, it describes debates on defence reforms and military transformation triggered by the creation in 2019 of the post of Chief of Defence staff. It concludes with an overview of state-military relations and identifies some areas for future research.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/163061||ISSN:||0035-8533||DOI:||10.1080/00358533.2022.2082684||Schools:||S.
