Abstract [en]

Nordic and Baltic geographers in the years 1933–1945 were surrounded by, and eventually under the rule of dictatorial regimes while Sweden remained peaceful and only partially subject to censorship. To what extent is this visible in the academic work of Swedish geographers, in their publications and in their reviews of publications of the surrounding world? The paper will address these issues of Swedish academic geography of the time. Most dissertations for licentiates and PhDs in human geography were chosen within the sub-discipline of historical regional geography of Sweden. In general, very few publications reflected the geopolitical situation surrounding Sweden. In the reviews sections, works of a Nazi character are criticized, and the number of German works reviewed declines rather abruptly after 1933. Soviet geography is only mentioned a few times. In 1938–40 the annual SGÅ published a geopolitical survey of Europe in a pro-Nazi (and pro-Soviet) spirit. The concept of race is used to differentiate Swedes, Finns, and ‘Lapps’. Beginning in 1942, there is a critique on the lack of social and geopolitical aspects in education and research. The history of Swedish geography 1933-45 thus shows a resistance to Nazi German geography, a few examples of accepting of Nazi geopolitics, but in general an almost total lack of addressing the geopolitical realities of the surrounding neighbourhood.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact of state territorial  regulations and restrections against the spread of Covid-19 on the life of the population of the twin cities of Tornio and Haparanda. To the inhabitants, the pandemic restrictions meant an oscillating ‘life world’ of opportunities and containments, affecting them differently, often depending on decisions taken by distant authorities and for reasons irrelevant to the local borderland.

Abstract [en]

This chapter’s intention is to present and analyse urban border locations, and the various geopolitical and/or economic reasons for their situation, based on examples from different periods of the Prussian-German territories, from 1701  to 1989. The area formed a conglomerate of territories, changing in spatial configuration. Almost by chance, some of Prussia’s and Germany’s towns came to be situated on, or very near, the boundary with another, often hostile, state. In some cases, these towns had a trans-border twin; in others, a twin town was intentionally built as a result of a new border delineation. The chapter will highlight four cases: Anklam, an 18th century border town with a split administration, Tilsit/Sovietsk under extreme geopolitical changes, The Free City of Danzig and its new Polish border replica, Gdynia, and the river towns separated by the Oder-Neisse agreement.

Abstract [en]

Rudolf Kjellén (1864–1922) discusses the birth, death, and possible rebirth of the state as a ‘living organism’. His concept of the nation, based on Renan, as a voluntary community is linked to the attainment of statehood. Poland is an example in this discussion, beginning in his book Stormakterna – The Great Powers – in 1905, with the nation under subjugation by three of these powers, continuing with his Staten som lifsform in 1916 where the possibility of rebirth is in sight, and finalized in 1920 in questioning the future of the world geopolitical order. His writings also include statements on the vulnerability of borders, the need for domestic autarky, and, on the problems of territorial autonomy, discussions of importance for the post-World War I geopolitical history of Poland; but these have mostly been neglected by post-World War II discourses. The aim of this article is to analyse how Poland’s geopolitical situation is reflected in the viewpoints of Rudolf Kjellén against the background of the historical, spatial development of the Polish state and Polish ethnicity.

Abstract [en]

The period of relative openness in the Soviet Union from the mid 1980s provided an opportunity for Sweden to establish contacts with the neighbouring Baltic Soviet republics. The political situation on both sides did not allow any direct diplomatic relations, and all endeavours had to be taken with utmost care. While modest at first, even programmatically so, these initiatives served to establish links with the independence movements in the Baltic republics. Besides the Local consular branch of the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in Leningrad, often acting without clear instructions from Stockholm, the Swedish government preferred to channel its first contacts with the Baltic republics through its primary institution for cultural and public diplomacy, the Swedish Institute (SI), later supplanted in this role by the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA). In their low profile, these activities can be analysed as early examples of the ‘soft diplomacy’ which have characterized later Baltic-Nordic ‘new regionalism.’. Drawing upon archival materials of the SI, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and interviews with key actors, this article shows how Swedish outreach to the Baltic republics was probed by Swedish diplomacy under considerable uncertainty of the development in the Eastern Baltic Sea region.
