The question to be answered are how Sweden has interact with affecting circumstances regarding national security when deciding type of defence cooperation, and how has Swedish defense cooperation evolved into what it is today.

The consequences during the cold War for small democracy like Sweden was to either be a part of the western bloc equated with NATO, or participate on the international arena in the UN cooperation or try to unite the Scandinavian countries in a Nordic military defence cooperation.
