The Education of Military Geography: Between Military Sciences and Human Sciences (The Case of the Lebanese Military Faculty) (Published)
The concept of military geography has evolved to enclose subjects that have a military intelligence extent, particularly that today’s military forces’ role is more oriented towards Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW). This should be taken into consideration in the curricula of military academies in order to train officers in the most efficient way. In Lebanon, the Military Faculty has updated its curricula in 2012 to conform to the missions expected from the Lebanese military forces. This article aims at analyzing the way military geographies were integrated into the curricula of the Lebanese Military Faculty, a way that seems to scatter its materials between Military and Human Sciences.
