    The North Korean abduction issue: emotions, securitisation and the reconstruction of Japanese identity from 'aggressor' to 'victim' and from 'pacifist' to 'normal'2015In: The Pacific Review, ISSN 0951-2748, E-ISSN 1470-1332, Vol. 28, no 1, 71-93 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    After Kim Jong-il's confession in 2002 that North Korean agents had abducted thirteen Japanese citizens in the 1970s and 1980s, North Korea has become the most detested country in Japan, and the normalisation of bilateral relations has been put on the back burner. The abduction issue has taken precedence in Japan even over North Korea's development of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles. It has also grossly overshadowed the atrocities for which Imperial Japan was responsible in the 20th century. Why has there been such strong emphasis on an issue that could be disregarded as comparatively ‘less important’? This article understands the ascendency of the abduction issue as the epitome of an identity shift under way in Japan – from the identity of a curiously ‘peaceful’ and inherently ‘abnormal’ state, to that of a more ‘normal’ one. The differentiation of North Korea as ‘abnormal’ emphasises Japan's own (claim to) ‘normality’. Indeed, by incarnating the perils of Japan's own ‘pacifist’ ‘abnormality’, which has been so central to the collective sense of Japanese ‘Self’ in the post-war period, the abduction issue has become a very emotional argument for Japan's ‘normalisation’ in security and defence terms. The transformation from ‘abnormal’ to ‘normal’ is further enabled by Japan trading places with North Korea in the discourse, so that Japan is defined as ‘victim’ (rather than former aggressor) and North Korea as ‘aggressor’ (rather than former victim). What is at stake here is the question whether Japan is ‘normalising’ or ‘remilitarising’, and the role of the abduction issue discourse in enabling such foreign and security policy change.

    Abstract [en]

    The report assesses the presidency of Barack Obama, with a focus on transatlantic security relations. Other foreign and security policy issues are also examined. In addition, four crucial domestic policy that helped define the administration are reviewed in depth, in order to arrive at an overall assessment of Barack Obama as president. The second part of the report examines what we may expect from Donald Trump as president, again with a focus on transatlantic security relations and again with an analysis of fundamental domestic issues.

    'Le petit coq gaullois' or 'the global diplomat'?: How France's self-image is reflected in the press discourse on the United States, 1984-20092011In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 14, no 1, 53-70 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore the extent to which the self-image of France expressed in relation to the United States has changed with changes in US foreign policy and paradigmatic changes in the international system. The article explores how the French political and intellectual elites related to the USA in the discourse of Le Monde and Le Figaro in 1984, 1994, 2004 and 2009. The analysis indicates that France's self-image is connected to multilateralism, liberalism and cultural protectionism. The stabilizing effect of political culture is suggested as an explanation for the fact that the press represented France's self-image in a more or less similar manner while different roles were ascribed to the USA over time.

    EU Armed Forces’ use of social media in areas of deployment2016In: Media and Communication, ISSN 2083-5701, E-ISSN 2183-2439, Vol. 4, no 1, 51-62 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The advent of social media can be seen both as a risk and an opportunity by armed forces. Previous research has primarily examined whether or not the use of social media endangers or strengthens armed forces’ strategic narrative. We examine armed forces’ perceptions of risks and opportunities on a broad basis, with a particular focus on areas of deployment. The article is based on a survey of perceptions of social media amongst the armed forces of EU member states, thus adding to previous research through its comparative perspective. Whereas previous research has mainly focused on larger powers, such as the US and the UK, this article includes the views of the armed forces of 26 EU states, including several smaller nations. In analyzing the results we asked whether or not risk and opportunity perceptions were related to national ICT maturity and the existence of a social media strategy. The analysis shows that perceptions of opportunities outweigh perceptions of risks, with marketing and two-way communication as the two most prominent opportunities offered by the use of social media. Also, armed forces in countries with a moderate to high ICT maturity emphasize social media as a good way for marketing purposes.

    How can European states respond to Russian information warfare?: An analytical framework.2017Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How can European democratic states respond to Russian information warfare? This article aims to enable and spur systematic research of how democracies can respond to the spread of distorted information as part of information warfare. The article proposes four ideal-type models representing different strategies that democratic governments can employ; blocking, confronting, naturalising and ignoring. Each strategy is illustrated by ways of empirical examples of strategies applied by European states in view of what is regarded as an unwelcome Russian strategic narrative that is spread as part of information warfare. We problematise each strategy and explore reasons for why states choose one strategy over another. We then explore how different strategies might contribute to destabilise or stabilise the security environment and how they resonate with democratic values. Finally, we contribute to theorising on strategic narratives by highlighting that the choice of strategy will influence states in their formation of strategic narratives. We thus further theorising on strategic narratives by highlighting the link between strategies and narratives, thus identifying one central dynamic in how narratives are formed.

    New media and the war in Afghanistan: The significance of blogging for the Swedish strategic narrative2015In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 17, no 1, 6-23 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The new media situation gives fuel to increased competition between narratives. In the sphere of security this poses challenges to government strategic narratives. Scholars, drawing on findings from the Anglo-Saxon sphere, suggest that the new media activism gives rise to counter-hegemonic narratives that thrive on and through social media sites. We argue that the emergence of counter-narratives in the sphere of security depends upon a few key dynamics that might vary with political context such  as political culture, the size of the blogosphere, the debate in mainstream media and socialization processes within the military   organization. Our case study of Swedish blogging about Sweden’s military contribution to the International Security Assistance   Force mission in Afghanistan suggests that blogs are mainly used to sustain – and not to challenge – the governmental narrative. This invites us to question the significance of new media platforms as counter-hegemonic forces in communities beyond the Anglo-Saxon sphere.

    Centraliserad auktoritet: En fallstudie av MSB:s relation till den svenska regeringen och WHO under ebolainsatsen 20142015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The WHO regional office in Africa reported the first outbreak of ebola in 2014 March 23rd. Since then 25 178 cases has been reported from five countries in Western Africa as well as from US and Spain which has led to 10 445 casualties (WHO, 2015b). In Sweden, the Swedish Contingencies Agency was assigned SEK100 million from the government to contribute to the international response to stop the outbreak.

    The aim of this master thesis is to clarify the relation between the Swedish government, Swedish contingencies agencies, and WHO (World Food Programme) in relation to the ebola outbreak in Weston Africa 2014 based on a thematic approach and a modified theory from May et al. (2008) about centralized authority.

    The main theory in this essay is May et al (2008) theory regarding delegated to centralized authority, which is supplemented by an explaining process-tracing. The theory is developed to contain four different themes; centralized authority, leadership & strategy, operative organization, and other organization.

    The conclusion from the study is three; (1) an agency can receive signals from different directions that could effect the experience of centralized authority, (2) the concepts of the theory has a more dynamic than linear connection and (3), the only direct consequence of an organization that has been exposed to a potential centralized authority is agenda instability.

    The Poverty of Exceptionalism in International Theory2014In: Journal of International Political Theory, ISSN 1755-0882, Vol. 10, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about the politics of ‘the exception’ and the role of ‘exceptionalism’ in contemporary international theory. The concept of ‘the exception’ was coined by Carl Schmitt and has in recent years become an inspiration for international relations theorists and foreign policy analysts, especially when engaging with issues such as great power politics, humanitarian intervention and the war against terrorism. It is concluded that attempts to apply Schmitt’s concept of ‘the exception’ seldom are persuasive and sometimes even contradictory to Schmitt’s theory. When dealt with out of context, ‘the exception’ becomes just an expression about something else. It is shown that there are other ways of handling the kind of political problem observed by Schmitt than what he and his followers are offering.

    Equality in International Society: A Reappraisal2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The author re-examines the concept of equality in international society, past and present. The conventional view that equality of states necessarily flows from sovereignty, that it is a corollary to sovereignty or simply a synonym, is considered a contingent rather than a necessary contention. The main argument is that equality in global international society should be theorised anew, restoring the normative strength of the principle. It is shown how concepts of equality make intelligible different normative and ethical conceptions of the modern political space in the past. Drawing on the works of such diverse theorists as Hans Kelsen, Peter Singer, John Rawls and Michael Oakeshott, the author suggests how a renewed interest in equality contributes to making international society a more inclusive, egalitarian, and credible moral and political association.

    State Civil Disobedience and International Society2017In: Review of International Studies, ISSN 0260-2105, E-ISSN 1469-9044, Vol. 43, no 2, 330-344 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the concept of State Civil Disobedience (SCD) in the context of international society. It is argued that SCD is problematic for several reasons. First, that SCD is extremely difficult to practice in an association such as international society, relying, as it does, a great deal on the policies and powers of a few dominating actors; second, that the unequal status of states makes SCD mainly an instrument of the strong, hence undermining not only the idea of civil disobedience as the strategy of the weak but also questioning the role of SCD within an international society based on the formal equality of states. It is concluded that the practice of SCD in international society requires an invigoration of international society as a moral association. A more practical alternative, it is argued, is to conceive of a limited concept of SCD confined largely to non-violent means and preferably practiced in order to resist legal anomalies.

    "Om Brexit?" eller "Om inte Brexit?": Konsekvenser för transatlantisk säkerhet2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this analysis is that there is no ’business as usual’ when considering the consequences of the Brexit referendum: there is either the question ’if Brexit?’ or the question ’if-not Brexit?’ because there is no turning around or comfortable retreat to established positions. Starting with an analysis of the British debate this ‘policy-brief paper’ looks at the consequences of the Brexit referendum for transatlantic security relations and in particular the consequences for Sweden. The most important arguments are, in brief: (1) That the value conflict inherent in the British debate, essentially between Eurosceptic nationalism and pro-EU integrationism, is mirrored in several European nations and remains a challenge to the EU; (2) that while Britain remains a European power regardless of the outcome of the referendum, the British geo-political outlook is differs from that of other European nations and will have to be taken into account when considering transatlantic security relations; (3) that NATO is likely to be even more important if Britain leaves the EU but that a strengthening of NATO’s European pillar is likely regardless of the outcome of the referendum, among other things because of US demands on European nations to improve their military capacity; (4) that Sweden in the case of Brexit is likely to lose influence over the development of European security cooperation in general but might nevertheless be able to gain in influence mainly as a result of Sweden’s geo-strategic position.

    Humanitarian Intervention and Moral Responsibility2015In: De Ethica: A Journal of Philosophical, Theological and Applied Ethics, ISSN 2001-8819, Vol. 2, no 1, 19-34 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates the moral aspects of humanitarian intervention. Humanitarian intervention involves the balancing of at least three sometimes contradictory principles - the autnonomy of states, the prohibition of war and the reduction of harm and human suffering - and hence requires not merely a legal and political approach to the matter but renders a moral viewpoint necessary.  It is argued that P.F. Strawson's concept Moral Reactive Attitudes (MRA) contributes to analysing the moral dilemmas and priorities involved. First, MRA underlines the moral aspects of international society that are essential for dealing with the moral conflict inherent in international society. Secondly, MRA helps to balance between competing claims of justification and legitimacy in cases of humanitarian intervention.

    The global standardization of regional disaster risk management2014In: Cambridge Review of International Affairs, ISSN 0955-7571, E-ISSN 1474-449X, Vol. 27, no 2, 319-338 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Natural disasters have become a heightened security issue in the last decade. Mitigating and responding to disasters, such as the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia and the 2011 earthquake in Japan, reflect a new security agenda that has spread across the globe and infiltrated most regional organizations. At first glance, the creation of regional programmes on disaster risk management (DRM) appears to be driven by the functional preferences of states. However, a comparison of ten regional organizations reveals some curious ambiguities. Despite different threat perceptions, financial budgets and geographical environments of regional organizations, a majority of states have formed DRM programmes that exhibit highly standardized features in terms of language, the referent points of protection and the apparent motivations for cooperation. World society theory is used to explain these striking similarities with reference to the global cultural system. This article also illustrates the analytical purchase of world society theory in understanding cooperation through regional organizations.

    Localized Development Gaps in Global Governance: The Case of Disaster Risk Reduction in Oceania2017In: Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations, ISSN 1075-2846, E-ISSN 1942-6720, Vol. 23, no 1, 121-139 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Global framework agreements on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) aim to reduce the vulnerability of states from the effects of natural hazards and guide international development strategies. The effects of these agreements have surely saved lives and buffered shocks to economic systems. Yet, there remains a gap between global aims and envisioned outcomes in local communities. This paper argues that cultural determinants of risk, which shape the reception and translation of ideas on DRR, must be taken seriously if international organizations wish to enhance their efficacy and reduce vulnerability. Elucidating the importance indigenous practices of resilience, time and governance have for the global diffusion of DRR can help to reduce this gap and encourage more effective development policy in the future.

    National participation in EU civil protection2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The devastating impact and trauma that cataclysmic events cause in an interdependent and globalized society set the backdrop of increasing civil protection cooperation in the European Union. In order to prevent and respond to future natural and manmade crises a number of initiatives have emerged such as sophisticated early-warning response systems to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, and a Monitoring and Information Centre to warn and facilitate national responses on major crises. These mechanisms have been used in several crises ranging from the Prestige tanker oil spill in 2002 to the Haiti earthquake in 2010. Key to a successful EU performance has been an active and efficient participation of EU member states.So far research has mainly paid attention to the functioning of the Brussels based organs. This fifth report from the European Societal Security Research Group (ESSRG) complements this focus with an in-depth study on the participation of member states in the EU Community Mechanism for Civil Protection. It gives an overview of variations in national engagement and investigates the ways the Union is strengthening participation through programmes for training, exercises and exchanges of experts. This report will be highly useful for practitioners who wish to obtain an overall vision of the current status of civil protection cooperation and encourages further and much needed research for scholars on European security, integration and crisis management.

    A demilitarization process under challenge: The example of Sweden2015In: Defence Studies, ISSN 1470-2436, E-ISSN 1743-9698, Vol. 15, no 3, 1-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the past decades, the process of militarization that characterized Sweden after the Second World War has been replaced by a process of demilitarization. With the debates following the war in Georgia 2008 and the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, this process of demilitarization appears under challenge. This raises questions about the nature of these processes and the problems facing the attempts at turning them around. The article introduces a framework for analysing the influence of the military upon politics and society in the twenty-first-century European context with the aim of better understanding the various traits, their interconnections and relation to broader trends in Europe and the West. The analysis shows that traits of demilitarization are still dominating in Sweden, although some indications of remilitarization can be found.

    Relations among state and non-state actors and the prospects for security governance: The case of the implementation of UN Security Council resolution 13252011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Security studies have only recently begun to analyze the complexities of managing the so-called new wars. This paper focuses upon the challenge of establishing inter-institutional interaction among different types of actors; civilian and military, state and non-state, involved in security governance aimed at managing new wars. The United Nations Security Council resolution 1325 is chosen as anempirical focal point for the analysis. The relationships among the actors engaged in implementing the resolution are often highly asymmetric in character. How do they view inter-institutional interaction? Are there differences in the prospects for interaction with regard to the two dimensions of the resolution; protection and participation of women and girls?  Drawing on new institutionalist theory a framework for analyzing how different types of actors view interaction with each other are presented.

    Kommunikation för Offentliga Organisationer: Svenska polisens förtroende och legitimitet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en fallstudie om svenska polisens kommunikation under och efter reformen som implementerades 1 januari 2015. Området som avhandlas är legitimitet och förtroende i relation till kommunikationsprocesser för organisationer inom den offentliga sektorn. Organisatoriska förändringar inom den offentliga sektorn sker kontinuerligt och påverkar samhället mer eller mindre drastiskt. Forskning visar att sättet dessa förändringar kommuniceras påverkar förutsättningar för förtroende samt legitim maktutövning. Ändå har kommunikationen i fallet med reformen inom Polismyndigheten präglats av intern splittring och icke konsekventa budskap vilket studier visar påverkar förutsättningar för förtroende negativt.

    För att komma åt polisens kommunikation har forskning om kommunikativa strategier samt rättfärdigande använts. Forskningen i studien cirkulerar kring kommunikativa strategier, ryktes-hantering, new public management samt uppsatsens använda teori för analysen Orders of worth som handlar om rationalitetsprinciper och rättfärdigande. Vilka principer och värden som betonas spelar en avgörande roll för polisens kommunikation och dess utfall.

    Fallstudien genomfördes via en kvalitativ textanalys av Polisförbundets ordförande Lena Nitz uttalanden och pressmeddelanden samt polisens kommunikationspolicy. Regeringens styr- och policydokument för polisen har använts som referenspunkt för kommunikationen och polisens mandat. Intervjuer med Lena Nitz samt politisk sakkunnig Johan Moström har bidragit till studien i form av kontext och förtydliganden.

    Resultatet av analysen visar hur polisen använder sig av flera olika kommunikativa strategier och principer vid sitt rättfärdigande. Kommunikationen går därmed att sammanfatta som icke-konsekvent och föränderlig. Mest framträdande är skillnaden från rättfärdigande i linje med det allmänt bästa till ett större fokus på rättfärdigande i linje med ryktes- och identitetshantering. Den röda tråden genom kommunikationen visar sig dock vara ett fokus på rättfärdigande genom de civilas princip (det allmänt bästa) vilket enligt använd teori skapar förutsättningar för förtroendeskapande samt legitim maktutövning.

    The Virtualization of Security: Philosophies of Capture and Resistance in Baudrillard, Agamben and Deleuze2016In: Security Dialogue, ISSN 0967-0106, E-ISSN 1460-3640, Vol. 47, no 3, 255-270 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The virtual has during the last couple of decades emerged as a forceful conceptual tool in security studies. While used primarily in order to question assumptions about an objective truth concerning the meaning and value of security and different forms of insecurity, the implications of drawing on this concept vary considerably depending on how the virtual is conceptualized, and specifically how the potentiality of the virtual is linked to the process of actualization. Turning to the philosophies of Baudrillard, Agamben and Deleuze, as well as key thinkers in contemporary security studies, this article delineates three different approaches to analysing the virtualization of security. Focusing in particular on how these approaches point to contending views of ‘capture’ and ‘resistance’, it is argued that the choice of approach has serious implications for grasping what is at stake politically in the process of virtualization. These implications relate, more precisely, to how the virtual opens up and/or closes down the spaces of resistance that the modern subject of security traditionally has relied upon. In this way, the virtualization of security is not only important for thinking about capture and resistance, but challenges the very ground on which the modern subject of security rests.

    Using the neo-classical realism paradigm to predict Russian foreign policy behaviour as a complement to using resources2012In: International Politics, ISSN 1384-5748, E-ISSN 1740-3898, Vol. 49, no 4, 517-529 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents the argument that analysts, crystal ball readers and general future-tellers generally should to a much higher extent rely on claimed interests of great powers than on resources alone in predictions of future behaviour of great powers. Analysts should analyse what states want to do given what they could do, as much as analyse what states could do based on their resources, or analysts should analyse state policy intentions as much as state policy resources.
