Activism and Adaptation. Swedish Security Strategies 1814-1885

Elgström, Ole LU and Jerneck, Magnus LU (1997) In Diplomacy & Statecraft 8(3). p.210-236
Abstract
Comparing observed Swedish security policy behavior to generally recognized models suggests that Sweden resorted to a variety of strategies in the 19th century, within the general position of nonalignment, in order to successfully avoid being drawn into war. Three phases are identified during the period examined, revealing a pendulum pattern in policy choices. The weak-state strategies employed by Sweden included quiescence, bandwagoning, balancing, and rhetorical activism.
