Abstract (Swedish)
Medierapporteringen som rullade igång under juni 2013 gällande amerikansk underrättelseverksamhet riktad mot allierade, chockerade många.

Vidare tyder resultatet på att underrättelsetjänsterna har agerat på egna initiativ, utan att den amerikanske presidenten kände till detaljerna i underrättelseverksamheten. (Less)

The study addresses the question: How can we explain that the longstanding alliance members are conducting intelligence activities directed against one another? The results indicate that US intelligence agencies have engaged in intelligence activities directed against Germany. Furthermore, results indicate... (More)
