Abstract [en]

This case study is an analysis of Swedish foreign policy and security policy from two feminist perspectives. The Swedish government has declared that they are feminist and that they will apply a feminist foreign policy. This even though there are several definitions of feminism and the fact that the understanding of security isn’t necessarily the same within the feminist foreign policy and the security policy. The investigation has the purpose of understanding Swedish foreign and security policies as well as seeing how compatible they are. To do this, the analysis concentrates on the ideas within the theories and the policies. The theories are two feminist perspectives, liberal feminism and feminist critical theory, which give us an understanding of how to interpret our policies. The study finds that you can see traces of both liberal feminism and feminist critical theory in our policies, but mostly liberal in our security policy. Furthermore, liberal feminism shows that the policies works quite well together and has almost no criticism to it. Feminist critical theory on the other and shows that the policies aren’t as compatible and finds several flaws.
