Abstract

Russia’s recent intervention in Ukraine has raised the issue of so-called hybrid warfare up the agenda of military planners across Europe. This has breathed new life into a concept which has been criticized in the past for being analytically vague and historically unmoored. For those seeking to understand an operational approach which capitalizes on ambiguity, seeks to avoid an identification of its true motives and blends civilian and military ways and means to achieve its ends, the concept of hybridity continues to provide food for strategic thought.
