Abstract [en]

Since the 1980’s the concept of security has broadened from traditional military security to new additional arenas, with each contributing to national security. The post-Cold War era and the current interconnectedness combined with the expanded concept has resulted in new perceptions of security and situations for states. The research questions of the thesis, How does the port of Gävle relate to the selected tendencies of national security? and Could the selling of the port be considered a matter of national security? aims to exemplify these problematics and examines the chosen case by utilizing the key aspects of economic security.

What can be concluded is that the selling of the port could be considered a case of national security. This is based upon the selected characteristics of economic security, which to different degrees was exhibited in the case. As several aspects of the port is recognized as significant in terms of economy, strategy and infrastructure would an incident or intentional act against the port have large consequences for the region and in extensions the nation.
