Militära alliansers inverkan på småstaters avskräckningsbeteende

Abstract [en]

A small state is by definition a state which is unable to obtain security using its own assets and must therefore resolve its security dilemma by seeking support from external capabilities. When a threat is experienced deterrence can be a strategic tool to discourage aggressors acting against the state.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between military alliances and small states’ deterrence behaviour. A hypothesis is created to contribute to the framework of the analysis and the understanding of the causal relationship. The study is conducted as a comparative case study between Sweden and Norway. They are both considered to be small states but resolve their security dilemma using two different strategies.

The results show that aligned small states mainly use collective deterrence of an immediate nature as transmitted threats are generally composed of external resources. Nonaligned small states tend to use general deterrence by means of internal resources. Instead of using collective deterrence, the nonaligned state primarily engages third parties through international forms of extended deterrence.

In conclusion, aligned small states can therefore be said to use devolving behaviour, in comparison to nonaligned states which deter more actively and consciously. The conclusion confirms the hypothesis but it requires further studies to be considered as valid and generalizable.
