Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this thesis is to analyze the behavior among political parties in the Swedish parliament in the debates on foreign policy from year 2000 to year 2015. The aim is to find out if and how much the parties have politicized the topic of Sweden’s standpoint towards the military non-alignment that has characterized the country’s foreign politics throughout the years. The aim was also to see if turbulence in the international sphere has led to a tendency among the parties to keep a more unanimous debate about Sweden’s military non-alignment for reasons that stem from the interest of maintaining national security. The analysis did not show that parties politicized this political area to a greater extent during this period, but rather kept a low profile in these matters. However, this analyze indicates that parties tend to bring up the topic to a higher degree right after a conflict in Sweden’s surrounding area has occurred. There are therefore reasons to reevaluate the theory that says that parties tend to stick together when international turbulence occurs, as the result of this analyze rather shows a higher level of politicization in the debates on foreign policy during these times.
