Lost in transition? - How the end of the Cold War affected Sweden’s state identity & interests
Sammanfattning: During the beginning of the 1990’s the world witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union and subsequently the end of the Cold War. This gigantic change within the international system had large ramifications on how states interacted with each other. Within this context, Sweden had a unique position due to its identity of non-alignment combined with an interest for participation in international peacebuilding operations. What becomes interesting to examine is how the end of the cold war affected Swedish state-identity and interests. In this paper the authors conduct a comparative study between the Swedish participation in the peacebuilding missions in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (ONUC) and Afghanistan (ISAF) in order to identify differences in identity using the work of Alexander Wendt on state identity and interests.
