Nevertheless, in reality mutinies, insubordination and fractionalisation occur. We argue that the faithful execution of orders depends on the level of organisational commitment of combatants. This level can be increased with the help of four management strategies. Using a dataset based on fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, we analyse the influence of each of these strategies. The Bayesian analyses show that recruitment, training and promotion has statistical reliable influence, but that providing rewards does not.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Haer, Roos</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Banholzer, Lilli</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-01-09T10:06:54Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Banholzer, Lilli</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>The creation of committed combatants</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Haer, Roos</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-01-09T10:06:54Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
