Abstract [en]

It is necessary to understand how politicians motivate the use of military force as a security policy instrument. Especially on all levels in the Swedish armed forces.  

This case study focuses on the political process and affecting policy documents before the political decisions are taken. The purpose is to identify official underlying motives to explain Sweden’s decision to participate in EUFOR Tchad/RCA. This knowledge gives an improved understanding about what political values and wants mediate for using military forces. Two analytical models, The Rational Actor and Governmental Politics, are used as theoretical framework.  

Results: Participation in the specific mission enables the Swedish wish to contribute increased both the EU´s and the UN´s global crisis management. Sweden considers that all countries have a responsibility by solidarity to protect human rights and solving a human catastrophe in the region. Sweden wants to be a loyal and active actor in both the EU and the UN aiming influence and impact for supporting Sweden’s national security. Participation achieves desired improved synergies between aid, civil and military efforts. Participation also improves the impact on implementation of resolutions 1325 and 1612 in all levels of EUFOR Tchad/RCA.

Sweden’s decisions were according to The Rational Actor both rational and logical which maximized national utility.  According to Governmental Politics the decisions preceded without any extensive struggle between actors and they showed total unity for participation. The actors want to mediate unity, show strong support and responsibility to the personnel who accomplish risky and important missions.
