An emerging security vacuum in the Baltic Sea? Swedish defense cuts and regional power
In this column from 2013, Ann-Sofie Dahl discuss the possible risks that the continued cuts in defense spending by the Swedish government might lead to. Dahl concludes that with a security vacuum looming over the Baltic Sea region as a result of the downsized Swedish military forces, and with a politically more assertive Russia rapidly increasing its military budget, the time has now finally come for some major changes in Sweden. A return to the traditional position as a regional power in the Baltic Sea could otherwise not be accomplished.
