  1. 1. “Who run the world?” : Comparing Sweden’s international behavior before and after the construction of a feminist foreign policy

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Fabian Fossum Hylin; [2016]
    Keywords : Feminist foreign policy; identity; en gendered security; state behavior; security politics; Sweden; quantiative content analysis; Common Foreign and Security Policy; rapid identity construction;

    Abstract : Viewing Sweden’s feminist foreign policy as a paradigmatically feminist and isolated case of domestic identity formulation, this thesis poses the following research question: to what extent does rapid identity construction affect state behavior? It assumes that a feminist state (en)genders the security concept and establishes interests in promoting (en)gendered security – which denotes the positive peace effects from female participation and protection – as an international security norm and thereby gain utility, security and legitimacy. Its constructivist hypothesis claims that the feminist identity has increased Sweden’s international promotion of (en)gendered security. READ MORE

    Keywords : Libya; Security Sector Reform; Human Security; Peacebuilding; British foreign policy; SALW.;

    Abstract : Security Sector Reform (SSR) has been established as a powerful tool in achieving sustainable peace in post-conflict countries, a belief which has strengthened since the events of September 11th 2001, and the subsequent war on terror which has seen both the UK and US heavily involved in peacebuilding operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. However there is a concern that following these experiences, SSR has become little more than a process of building the military capacity of recipient countries in order to meet the immediate security needs of donor states.
