Sammanfattning: According to theorist Harald Høiback, a doctrine should consist of three salient elements in order to qualify as an adequate and functional document; theory, culture and authority. The occurrence of these elements throughout the doctrine can furthermore be refined, resulting in three different areas of utility; education, command and change. However, Swedens’ contemporary military doctrine consists of a series of documents, including a strategic and an operational doctrine. This evidently evokes questions regarding the contexture and most appropriate purpose of each doctrine, and furthermore whether vertical coherence between the doctrinal levels can be identified or precluded. Focusing on Swedens’ military doctrine in whole, this single-case study uses a qualitative text analysis to identify key elements in each doctrine. This thesis therefore enables conclusions regarding doctrines as a specific conceptual tool, and deductions considering consistency between different levels of doctrines. Findings reveal that Militärstrategisk doktrin 2016 is mainly influenced by cultural elements, most suitably being utilized as a tool of education. Operativ doktrin 2014 however emphasizes authority, resulting in a more suitable doctrine as a tool of command. Concluding the results, this thesis shows that Swedens’ doctrinal series does not manifest vertical coherence in terms of consistency between levels. However, further research is required to confirm whether the absence of coherence between the doctrinal levels generates negative effects, or whether it’s positive considering complementing aspects.
