1. Snabilie, I. The Organizational Dynamics of Knowledge Production.

Degree: 2014, Universiteit Utrecht

ABSTRACT This study examines the organizational dynamics of knowledge production within the Dutch intelligence community, particularly as it aims to produce local and non-kinetic knowledge. Through the use of qualitative research methods, it is found that knowledge production is practiced based on the assumption that knowledge is neutral and can therefore be used to the advantage of the organization by knowledge management. Such practices induce knowledge to be produced through an infrastructure that collects local 'data' and aggregates it up to the central level where it has to be fused into a concise prognosis for the staff at the central Head Quarters. Through such practice, the military organization constructs a 'sense of neutrality' of knowledge that legitimizes the decisions they base on it. However, this study demonstrates that such a neutral separation between intelligence and decision-making is ambiguous, because it is demonstrated that knowledge is produced through the constant negotiation over the boundaries between the two. Advisors/Committee Members: Fumerton, Dr. M..

2. Saat, J.M. Opportunity structures affecting the MOLTs: An analysis of how internal and external features of the larger context affected the operational actions of the Military Observation and Liaison Teams during the Netherlands Provincial Reconstruction Team mission in Baghlan, Afghanistan.

Degree: 2014, Universiteit Utrecht

The aim of this study is to evaluate how the contextual opportunity structures in which the Dutch Military Observation and Liaison Teams (MOLTs), later Mission Teams (MTs) operated, affected the operational actions of the MOLTs during the Netherlands Provincial Reconstruction Team (1(NL)PRT) mission in the North-Afghan province Baghlan from 2004 till 2006. Although the PRT consisted of different elements, the focus is on the MOLTs, because these teams were seen as the primary carriers of the Netherlands PRT mission. They were the eyes and ears of the Netherlands PRT. The MOLTs operated in a larger structural context in which different contextual features hindered or facilitated the operational actions of the MOLTs. This ‘affect’ is explained in terms of mechanisms and processes to get a deeper understanding of how and why there was an ‘affect’. Although the concept of opportunity structures is mainly focused on external factors that hindered or facilitated actions, this study shows also features that appear inside the MOLT or PRT organization hindered or facilitated operational actions. During the mission, a significant shift has taken place in how internal and external features of the opportunity structures affected the operational actions of the MOLTs. Advisors/Committee Members: Fumerton, Dr. M. A..

Subjects/Keywords: Opportunity structures; internal and external features; mechanisms; processes; operational actions; Dutch Military Observation and Liaison Teams (MOLTs); Netherlands Provincial Reconstruction Team (1(NL)PRT); Baghlan; Afghanistan.

3. Knack, A.I. The Geopolitics of Foreign Land Acquisitions in the Philippines.

Degree: 2014, Universiteit Utrecht

The thesis examines how foreign acquisitions of land in the Philippines is made possible by Filipino policymakers’ geopolitical reasoning based on the opportunities in the Philippines’ geopolitical context, and the geopolitical representations that both legitimize their policies, and also affect their cognition. The thesis argues that duplications and contradictions in the Philippines’ legal context, the normalization of extralegal practices in Philippine politics, as well as colonial mentality have together led to opportunities for foreign corporations to acquire land in the Philippines. The thesis argues for the inclusion of domestic geopolitical relationships to studies of Geopolitics, since, as the case of the Philippines demonstrates, not only global geopolitical relationships made foreign acquisitions of land in the Philippines possible, but also the domestic geopolitical relationships through the dominance of elite Filipino families in the Philippines. Although foreign land deals appear to potentially erode national sovereignty, land deals in the Philippines take place at a scale that policymakers’ control, so land deals endanger the territorial control of rural communities living on lands targeted for land deals and not national sovereignty. Advisors/Committee Members: Fumerton, Dr. M..

Subjects/Keywords: geopolitics; critical geopolitics; land grabbing; large scale land acquisitions; farmland grabs; land grabs
