This study adds to the research within the theories of Securitization and the Communicational Revolution, while focusing on a combination of the two for establishing and examine a securitization process of the Communicational Revolution within the Swedish Armed Forces. The studied case consists of four security reports written by the Swedish Defense Preparation, which are gathered from the Swedish governments’ official publications of the ministry series. Inspired by the social effects of a communicational revolution within the society, I hold that, a social change of this extent is inevitable to not correspondingly show its consequences in a change of threats. I therefore transact a research using an analysis of ideas, with the theory of securitization as a methodological framework to examine if this change of threats in liaison of the communicational revolution has been securitized. The results imply an increasing securitization within the timeframe of thirty years, where individualization and destabilization of earlier power positions, as consequences of the revolution, is seen in a perspective of potential threats.
