This study asks key questions of the policy behind the Future Reserves 2020 programme, to understand what these changes will mean for the Armed Forces, reservists, and civilian employers.
• How will a ‘whole force’ structure affect the relationship between the Armed Forces and civilian society?
• What does it mean to be both a soldier and a civilian?
• How do employers view the ‘whole force’ structure changes, and how do they support (or not) employees who are in the reserves?
