Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis analyses the ideas and beliefs of the swedish Social Democratic Party and the Conservative Part concerning swedish diplomacy, swedish embassies and swedish representation abroad.

This thesis analyses the ideas and beliefs of the swedish Social Democratic Party and the Conservative Part concerning swedish diplomacy, swedish embassies and swedish representation abroad. As a basis I’ve used the views of the Traditional School, the Nascental School and the Innovative School as they are presented by Stuart Murray in one of his articles. Using these as well as traditional theories on international relations constructed three idealmodels which allow me to answer the following questions:
Which ideas and beliefs are to be found in the relationship toward Diplomacy, Embassies and Swedish Representation abroad within the Swedish Social Democratic Party and the Swedish Conservative Party?
How may these ideas and beliefs be applied to three theoretical idealmodels?
I have analysed foreign policy declarations, party programs and parliamentary motions and concluded that all three models are applicable, this was especially the case with the parliamentary motions. The Social Democrats were mainly Innovative-constructivist in their views while the Consveratives showed clear Nascent-Liberal tendencies. As globalization progressess and with the continued presence of non-traditional as well as non state-bound actors on the international stage, I posit that the innovative-constructivist ideals will become more revalent at the expense of the traditional-realist.
