The Conflicts of Institutional Instability: Understanding the Institutional Logics of EU Cybersecurity
Swedish Defence University.
2020 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Managing cybersecurity as a new and emerging security threat, the European countries have turned to the EU as a platform to build cybersecurity. However, these efforts have been hindered by conflict and non-convergence of central cybersecurity policymaking. This study uses a framework of institutional logics to deepen the understanding of these conflicts. By looking at the belief systems and associated practices expressed in the cybersecurity strategies of the European Commission, Denmark, Spain and Lithuania, this study identifies differences among the examined cases regarding how they interpret cybersecurity should be organised, with emerging, and diverging, patterns of supranational and subsidiary logics. This serves as an indicator for understanding the organisational field of EU cybersecurity as one of intralogical struggle.
