i NON TRADITIONAL SECURITY IN THE POST COLD WAR ERA: IMPLICATIONS OF A BROADENED SECURITY AGENDA FOR THE MILITARIES OF CANADA AND AUSTRALIA by LEANNE JENNIFER SMYTHE MA, University of Kent (Canterbury), 2005 BA (Hon), Trinity Western Univers ity, 2003 A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES (Political Science) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (Vancouver) April 2013 © Lean ne Jennifer Smythe, 2013 ii ABSTRACT The growing salience of non traditional security concerns for the post Cold War national security of western st ates has led this author to ask : What implications does the p ost Cold War proliferation of “security” threats, and therefore, the securitization of non traditional challenges, hold for the primary security institution of the state, namely, the military? Using the research design of a heuristic case study, this project seeks to answer this question through the meth odology of process tracing, relying on document analysis and semi structured elite interviews for data This dissertation first argues that the category of “non traditional” security concerns can be separated into three “types”: (1) Fragile and Failing St ates, (2) Global Terrorism, and (3) Transnational Political Challen ges Using this framework, the dissertation then examines two cases , which are the national security strategies of Canada and Australia throughout the post Cold War Era For each case, the impact of the securitization of no ntraditional security concerns is analyzed with relation to defence policy, military doctrine, force structure, and operational outputs It concludes that both militaries have been significantly impacted by the securit ization of non tradition al security concerns during the post Cold War Era, although the securitization processes and policy outcomes have been different in each case iii PREFACE This project w as supervised by Dr Brian Job and support ed by two committee me mbers, Dr Kati a Coleman and Dr Michael Byers, all at the University of British Columbia These individuals provided guidance throughout the p roject and editorial comments on the final drafts All primary research, including document analysis and the co nducting of interviews , as well as the subsequent analysis and writing, was undertaken and compl eted by myself This project received ethics approval from the UBC Behavioural Research Ethics Board, certificate number H10 02078 iv TABLE OF CONTENTS ABSTRACT ii PREFACE iii TABLE OF CONTENTS iv LIST OF TABLES viii LIST OF FIGURES ix LIST OF ACRONYMS x ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS xii DEDICATION xiii INTRODUCTION 1 Contribution to the Field 2 Structure of the Dissertation 5 Conclusion 7 PART I: FOUNDATIONAL IDEAS 8 CHAPTER 1: NON TRADITIONAL SECURITY 8 The Nature of Security in the Post Cold War Er a 8 The Definition of “Non Traditional Security” 16 Constructed Nature of Security Threats 28 Implications of a Broadened Security Agenda for the Military 40 Conclusion 51 CHAPTER 2: RESEARCH DESIG N AND METHODOLOGY 53 Scope Conditions 53 Policy Creation and Translation: A Model 60 Research Methodology and Data Gathering Tools 62 Case Study Selection 67 Examining the Research Project: Caveats 69 Conclusion 71 CHAPTER 3: STRATEGIC CULTURES OF CANADA AND AUSTRALIA 72 Strategic Culture Framework 73 CANADA 74 The Canadian Strategic Context 74 v Analysis: Canadian Strategic Culture and NTS 87 AUSTRALIA 90 The Australian Strategic Context 90 Analysis: Australian Strategic
