Episode 12: Nina Hellum


Even with competitive national service, motivating soldiers is important. Elisabeth Braw discusses what motivates conscripts during their service with Nina Hellum, a social anthropologist at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment. Hellum specialises in soldier behaviour and has just completed a report on conscript motivation.

On the Cusp is a monthly podcast from the Modern Deterrence Project at RUSI. Hosted by Elisabeth Braw, each month Elisabeth interviews an innovative leader combating new national security threats. 

Thanks to Willis Towers Watson.
