Abstract
The purpose of this essay is to study the problematic relationship between Sweden and Russia and how Sweden has changed its view about Russia as a threat to the Swedish sovereignty since the end of the Cold War. For this purpose I will study and analyse governmental propositions and other military documents between the time periods of 1990 - 2015 to decipher how Sweden views Russia as a security threat. To then understand and analyse my findings I will use the theories about securitization, desecuritization and resecuritization to understand how Sweden has changed its views on Russia.

The purpose of this essay is to study the problematic relationship between Sweden and Russia and how Sweden has changed its view about Russia as a threat to the Swedish sovereignty since the end of the Cold War. For this purpose I will study and analyse governmental propositions and other military documents between the time periods of 1990 - 2015 to decipher how Sweden views Russia as a security threat. To then understand and analyse my findings I will use the theories about securitization, desecuritization and resecuritization to understand how Sweden has changed its views on Russia. This essay will also have the two ambitions to define and understand the term resecuritization, and that is because the term resecuritization lacks a proper definition and is used more of a buzzword in the academia rather than way of understanding changes in the process of securitization. The second ambitions are to map out how Sweden changes its viewings on Russia as a security threat over the period 1990 – 2015. My conclusion is that Sweden over the period 1990 – 2015 has drastically changed and Sweden is today more ready than ever for an attack from Russia. Another finding in this essay is the use and understanding of the term resecuritization in the context of securitization theories. (Less)
