Warrior Nation podcast series 4: militarism and democracy
In the UK, the military is often viewed as an impartial and benign actor subordinated to a democratic leader. This season we examine the truth behind this commonly held view.
Since 2000 the civil-military gap has been narrowing as the UK military has sought to influence democracy and democratic institutions. With our hugely knowledgeable guests, each episode explores how militarism and the military impact on democracy and democratic processes in Britain.
