    Cyberplagues, IT, and Security: Threat Politics in the Information Age.2001In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Journal of Contingencies & Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 211-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The swiftness and considerable political impact of the widespread conceptualisation of IT as a security problem makes it a particularly fruitful case for analysing threat politics – how and why some threat images but not others end up on the political agenda. A conceptual framework combining theories of framing, securitisation, agenda setting and policy diffusion is developed, which is applied to the case of IT security policy in Sweden. The analysis emphasises the impact of the end of the Cold War, the uncertainty following the breakthrough of the information age, the tradition of focusing on information and technological development in military affairs, the adaptability to ‘widened security thinking’ within the military-bureaucratic establishment, and the lack of opposition to the securitisation of IT.

    On the Policy Relevance of Grand Theory2014In: International Studies Perspectives, ISSN 1528-3577, E-ISSN 1528-3585, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 94-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper challenges the commonly held perception that grand theory is irrelevant for policy. Policy, it is often argued, is in need of detailed case-oriented empirical analysis and instrumental policy recommendations rather than any sweeping generalizations or lofty ideas emanating from grand theory. Notwithstanding, this paper argues that grand theory has an underestimated relevance for policy. To be able to see and appreciate this, the notion of policy relevance must be expanded. Whereas grand theory and grand concepts such as Realism, Liberalism, Constructivism, or Marxism do not provide case-specific knowledge or recommendations, they provide general roadmaps, conceptualization of world affairs, and also have a symbolic function, legitimating or challenging established policy paradigms. Policymakers, akin to grand theorists, arguably like to make sweeping statements and generalizations. Drawing on theory and findings in public policy studies, here applied to international relations and foreign policy, this paper suggests conditions under which grand theory can be relevant for policy.

    Partition and Redemption: A Machiavellian Analysis of Sami and Basque Patriotism1997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the end of the Second World War, the location of most inter­state borders has been fixed. This suggests that the common phenomenon of ethnic groups partitioned by internationally recognized state borders is permanent. Nevertheless, a recurrent dream of ‘redemption’ (i.e. the building of a self-ruling polity which unifies the separate segments) is capable of inciting patri­otic mobilization even in the face of a very long period of unbroken partition. Little is known about this clash between dream and reality. How can an ethnoterritorial group which is appar­ently permanently partitioned between separate, sovereign states be redeemed? In seeking a solution to this puzzle, I attempt a Machiavellian type of analysis, defined as an approach which com­bines a patriotic perspective with a strategic view of the choice of specific means and ends in a way which is free of state-centrism. I also employ Machiavelli’s theory-building method, which is a form of abduction.

    This study focuses on six aspects of the problem of partition and redemption: the territorial setting, the historical process, partitioning state contexts, perceptions of partition and homeland mythology, strategies, and outcomes. Two instances are selected for case study and compari­son: the Sami in northernmost Europe, and the Basques in Spain and France. Both groups are partitioned between separate states, are a minority in each one, and lack control over all existing state governments.

    The analysis reveals the unexpected result that the less numerous, greater dispersed, more partitioned, and gen­erally weaker Sami have been more successful in redemption than have the Basques. While the Sami have built common bodies which officially represent Sami in all four partitioning states, the Basques have only a limited transborder cooperation between the Basque Autonomous Community (BAC) in Spain and non-Basque regional authorities in France. It is more impor­tant to have com­patible building blocks in each state (like the three Nordic Sami Parliaments), than to have a single powerful one (like the BAC). Without fairly similar and harmonized parti­tioning states, like the Nordic countries, it is ex­tremely difficult for transborder polity-building to succeed. Another main conclu­sion, which disputes the findings of other re­search, is that redemption is possi­ble even when a group remains partitioned, given that the goal of statehood is abandoned in favour of a less ambitious transborder homerule. In order to realize this goal, the most generally applicable method is a stepwise strategy aimed at creating compatible building blocks in each state. A variant of this is the blueprint strategy, that is, using an achievement in one state as a model for the struggle in other states. In contrast to non­parti­tioned groups, partitioned groups can refer to their own achievement in other states.

    The subject of interest here transcends the domestic-international divide. Similarly, the analysis tran­scends academic boundaries, mainly those of political theory, inter­national politics and com­parative politics. This combination provides a starting-point for further inquiry into the pattern of overlapping polities which is emerging, and of partition and redemption in particular.

    Security in the Barents Region: Interpretations and Implications of the Norwegian Barents Initiative1995In: Cooperation and Conflict, ISSN 0010-8367, E-ISSN 1460-3691, Vol. 30, no 3, p. 259-286Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the new Norwegian security thinking as realized in the establishment of the Barents Region. Two questions are asked: First, how can the security approach of the Barents initiative be conceptualized theoretically? Second, what are the practical implications of this approach? In answering these questions, three problems are focused on: (1) whether security is an issue or a dimension; (2) the unit problem; (3) the problem of change. `Traditionalist' and `revisionist' positions on each of these problems are elaborated and applied in an analysis of the Norwegian Barents initiative. In the Barents framework, Norway approaches security as a dimension rather than as a single issue. Furthermore, security is viewed as primarily concerning the state, but some rhetoric and potential implications indicate that also non-state communities, such as the Sámi people, can be approached as security subjects. Finally, rather than stability in the sense of the status quo, Norway seems to consider predictable change to be a basic aim of the Barents strategy.

    Abstract [en]

    Content analysis is an established and effective method for research in the social science and, despite what many think, it has been around for quite some time. It has also tremendously benefited from ICT and the growth of computing power, as computers have proved to excel in the dull routine of scanning texts for keywords. But content analysis has become ubiquitous with the advent of the Internet, particularly emails and Web sites. Keyword search, a pivotal element of content analysis, is the most widespread feature of many Internet applications, from search engines to password-cracking programs. Consequently, it has become a central concern for cybersecurity. This chapter investigates some of the most important applications of content analysis on the Net and discusses its increasing essential position in many areas of cybersecurity.

    International Relations, Digital Security, and Content Analysis: A Constructivist Approach2014In: International Relations and the Global Politics of Science and Technology / [ed] Maximilian Mayer, Mariana Carpes, Ruth Knoblich, Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer, 2014, p. 205-219Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development and global diffusion of access to the Internet has—as is the case with most new and game-changing technologies—been accompanied with fears and threat perceptions. This chapter argues, on the one hand, that Constructivist IR theory is particularly suited for addressing and interpreting the threat discourses and identity issues which come in focus in cybersecurity. The ease with which cyber-culprits can hide their identity and location, operating through networks of hijacked computers across the world, makes fear-mongering threat and identity discourses a key issue in cybersecurity. On the other hand, this chapter presents content analysis—a set of quantitative methods focusing on key word searches—as a pertinent or even ubiquitous method for both the study and practice of cybersecurity. Through simple and globally accessible interfaces, the entire Web can be scrutinized using content analysis. Equipped with Constructivist theory and content analysis methods, the IR scholar stands prepared to uncover and better understand the massive discursive world of the Internet.

    Who controls the Internet?: Beyond the obstinacy or obsolescence of the state2009In: International Studies Review, ISSN 1521-9488, E-ISSN 1468-2486, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 206-230Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the Internet being a truly global phenomenon, understanding how this is controlled should yield observations of relevance for the study of global governance more generally. The Internet, and how it is controlled, should therefore be a concern for all students of world politics, and not only for the smaller albeit multidisciplinary community of scholars engaging in ‘‘Internet studies.’’ A first step is to acknowledge that Internet control varies across time, space, and issue-areas. To better understand such complex patterns of governance, we need to go beyond universal generalizations. In an attempt to support the middle-range theorizing, which arguably is needed, this essay introduces and briefly unpacks three analytical questions: What are the key aspects of Internet control? What actors might control what aspects of the Internet? And, finally, under what conditions are different types of actors likely to control various aspects of the Internet?

    The Information Revolution, Security and International Relations: (IR)relevant Theory?2006In: International Political Science Review, ISSN 0192-5121, E-ISSN 1460-373X, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 221-244Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is twofold: to analyze the impact of the information revolution on security and to clarify what existing international relations theory can say about this challenge. These pertinent questions are initially addressed by a critical review of past research. This review shows that the concern for security issues is largely confined to a specialist literature on information warfare and cyber-security, while neither the general literature on information society nor security studies pay any serious attention to information-technology-related security issues. The specialist literature is mostly policy oriented, and only very rarely informed by theory, whether from the international relations discipline or any other field. In this article, three general international relations “schools” (realism, liberalism, and constructivism) are scrutinized with regard to what they can say about security in the digital age. It is argued that the liberal focus on pluralism, interdependence, and globalization, the constructivist emphasis on language, symbols, and images (including “virtuality”), and some elements of realist strategic studies (on information warfare) contribute to an understanding of digital-age security. Finally, it is suggested that pragmatism might help to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and overcome the dualistic, contending nature of international relations theories.

    Technocracy, Politicization and Non-Involvement: Politics of Expertise in the European Regulation of Chemicals2010In: Review of Policy Research, ISSN 1541-132X, E-ISSN 1541-1338, Vol. 27, no 2, p. 167-185Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the relationship between scientific expertise and policy in European chemicals regulation. We argue that the role of scientific expertise in the European regulation of chemicals varies across decision-making levels, countries, and stages of the policy process. Our case study of the role of scientific expertise in the regulation of brominated flame retardants illustrates considerably different manifestations of this interconnected process across regulatory arenas, even though this case concerns a single group of substances. On the European Union level, we find a mix of technocracy and politicization; in Sweden, a clear-cut politicization; and in Poland, noninvolvement. Such differences can be explained by a combination of factors, in particular frame dominance, and mobilization of advocacy coalitions.
