The Role of “NGOs” in Knowledge Management of Conflicts

By its very nature, the outcomes of modern armed conflicts are increasingly being determined by political rather than purely military considerations. To support the politics of initiating and continuing to wage war in the current political environment requires a perception and sense of legitimacy and righteousness, whether the basis of this is or is not based upon actual and not projected reality. In an age of an increasingly cynical attitude towards both mainstream politics and mainstream media, a new and “independent” source of information is found in the NGOs in shaping the information space of modern battlefields in order to affect public perception and opinion of these events, which is illustrated with examples from Ukraine and Syria.

Keywords
