Abstract [en]

This study aims to theory tentatively, with the basis taken from liberalism and realism, analyze and compare the factors underlying contemporary Swedish security policy, to work in political alliances while Sweden choose to be military non-aligned. The period in the study covers the years 2009-2016. The selected theories, through their differences and drivers, has been operationalized into indicators that have been used in the processing of empirical data and aimed at trying to clarify the theory that has the clearest explanation power to the selected security stance.

The survey results show that the explanatory power of Swedish security policy can not be directly attributed to an isolated theory, but an interaction occurs. The liberal theory models are more dominant in the selected empirical data and has the clearest explanation power that Sweden is in political alliances and at the same time choose to be military non-aligned. The realistic theory model and its ideological roots are still in, that Sweden and our national interests, our history and tradition are important, which directly and indirectly affect us in our choices and our actions.
