Since the 9/11-attacks several nations have been confronted with a new international threat, its nature traces back to the political- and religious- radical movements of the 20th century Cold War. Ever since, various states have been under threat by terrorist organizations around the world due to mainly participating in worldwide counter-terrorist interventions created by western alliances. In Sweden, amongst other countries, the state took security-precautions that would imply total control of information throughout the territorial borders. The assigned proposition was accepted by the Swedish parliament in June 18th 2008, after this date wild spread criticism was still in effect ever since the Swedish government first publicly announced the proposition in May 8th 2007. This study emphasizes on understanding why the Swedish government chose to present this proposition to parliament, in order to complete this task the study will present the motives and the alleged threats that were the core of the proposition and its value-maximizing goal of creating a new surface for Swedish homeland security. The core questions of the study to be examined are; “How was the decision-making progress being managed?”, “What was the core arguments of the opposition in the official debates?” and “Why did the government choose to announce the proposition?”. In addition, the study will present the solution to the problem through the usage of Allison & Zelikow’s famous geopolitical study “Essence of Decision”, in where the Swedish government will take the place of the “rational actor” in this national dilemma. As the process moves forward the reader will be aware of the consequences and the options of the Swedish government during the decision making process, and due to this also able to determine the cause of action that was required by the state to prevent the later confirmed threats.
