From the thesis abstract: "The NATO military construction engineers have historically played a critical role in shaping the operational environment. This role includes developing infrastructure in the host nation, in order to establish a lasting peace. Changes in the international security environment entail consequences for the military engineers. The construction engineers in the hybrid war will be faced with a more complex operational environment. To establish a qualitative pace it is essential to mitigate the gap, or erase the border between military and non-military actors. Military construction engineers will be crucial in shaping the hybrid environment and when developing the civil-military relationship. The NATO military construction engineers are in a position to take on this challenge."
