Then I examine what NATO is, where it´s going and how Sweden´s relationship with NATO looks like. In the analysis I use this knowledge on a number of variables that is essential for examine any security policy. The variables are given a value as realistic or liberalistic and summed up to answer on what ground the security policy rests. This also gives the reason to why Sweden isn´t a part of a military alliance and thereby how we can understand Sweden´s choice and it´s security policy. (Less)
