One measure proposed in White Paper No. 36 was to undertake research amongst enrolled cohorts from the current Joint Selection Process for General Conscription and onwards. Based on this work, carried out at Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI), this anthology aims to give some answers to why NorAF are unable to increase its female content. Military women - The Achilles Heel in Defence Politics? follows different age cohorts over time through the NorAF career path, from recruitment to retention, particular with a view on today's challenges. At the end of the anthology some corresponding and strategic measures are suggested in order to increase the share of military women.
