Title: WikiLeaks och USA – En studie i WikiLeaks påverkan på USA:s rätts- och maktstat

Authors: Robin Andersson, Edmond Sula

Department of Social Science - Linneaues University, Kalmar

Autumn 2011

This is a case about WikiLeaks impact on USA as a constitutional state and a state of power. WikiLeaks is an organization that leaks original source documents from authorities and civilians. Documents that have an impact on diplomatic relationships and the organization were early condemned by the USA. WikiLeaks has been questioned, but so has the USA for condemnation of WikiLeaks, because of possible violation of vital rights. The empirical material comes from previous research, WikiLeaks documents, official statements, official documents from the USA, and media. We have used Öyvind Österud theory about the state, theories about “Americanism” and André Jansson’s theory about media’s effect on the nation.  The result of the questions formulations presents the official US view on WikiLeaks and how they justify their condemnation, and how WikiLeaks justify their work.

Key Words: WikiLeaks, USA, Constitutional state, Power state
