Abstract [en]

For more than a decade Afghanistan stood in focus for Swedish foreign policy. Sweden contributed with both military and civilian personnel to the intervention but despite the efforts of both missions many security challenges still remain in the region of which Sweden was responsible for. One reason that research has held responsible for the outcome is the lack of a coherent approach between the security and development missions which the Swedish government argued favourably for but lacked the power to address. This pursuance of a coherent approach between security and development efforts is something that academic critics of today have become more and more sceptic of. The purpose of this thesis is to nuance the Swedish governments way of creating policys for military interventions by seeing the problems through the eyes of one of those critics, and by doing so, seek a possible explanation of the outcome.
