The study takes it start 1992 and the last debate regarded was held in February 2017. The four parties examined are Socialdemokraterna, Moderaterna, Centerpartiet and Liberalerna. Only actual arguments about NATO membership are considered in the study, as a clear limitation. The method is based on text-interpreting by creating ideal types of liberalism and realism. Further on, the result of the study is that the view of realism is as most visible foremost in the earlier debates and later the liberalism aspects seem to more and more accelerate in its presence. From a party perspective observing the whole period it seems more common for Socialdemokraterna and Centerpartiet to use realism and more common for Moderaterna and Liberalerna to use liberalism.
