In the recent decades, Sweden, traditionally a neutral and non-aligned country, has taken a huge leap in its change of defence- and security policy towards the European Union and its fellow Nordic countries.

This dissertation raises the question where this idea came from and why Sweden stand by it. By using process-tracing as a method to cast light on this somewhat new chapter in Swedish foreign policy affairs, we are offered an insight to why and where this declaration of solidarity came to be.
To say the least, the reason is spelled EU. Sweden’s decision to become an active team player in the European circus along with the Lisboan treaty has once and for all shattered the Swedish neutrality as well as declaring a policy it can not uphold. In the end it seams, it is only a game of words. (Less)
