Female headship in the security arm: sparking defence


Edwiyovwiri Chritie


Accepted 2 June 2015

The concept of sparking defence developed by NATO is a comprehensive tool to create capabilities which are to be used in common by the member states and partners. These concepts and thoughts have newly emerged as innovative solutions for the current issues which NATO is facing in terms of defence and security. The meaning of the concept refers to the ‘common security’ in all aspects. The core idea of this paper is that the current period and circumstances are favourable to the development of common securitization, which will bring and a series of advantages will be brought to securitization by gender balance and defence planning together.

Key-words: women and leadership, smart defence, NATO, crisis, challenges
