Abstract
Although Sweden is a relative small state by comparison they have participated in a large number of military interventions through out the past decades.

In order to test the validity of the hypothesis neo-realism and neo-liberal institutionalism will be used in comparison. The cases have been chosen based on their divergent nature with regards to geography,... (More)

The cases have been chosen based on their divergent nature with regards to geography, political rule and more in order to achieve a wide empirical range. To further achieve a comprehensive presentation the military interventions will also be studied from a foreign security policy perspective looking back on what has shaped the present politics of Sweden. The study will show that Sweden has kept a clear course with regards to motives. (Less)
