  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This book brings together a strong and international team of linguists, historians, and social and political scientists renowned for their expertise on North and South Caucasus. Their contributions paint a compelling picture of the region’s contested past and highlight some of the enduring challenges still confronting it. Taken together, the ten chapters of the book enhance our understanding of the region’s ancient languages, shed light on historical events of crucial significance, and uncover mechanisms behind political conflict and cooperation in the tinderbox that is the Caucasus.

  • Mistakes and Demise : Mikhail Gorbachev and the Dissolution of the Soviet Union
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Mistakes, Errors and Failures Across Cultures. - Switzerland : Springer Nature. - 9783030355739 - 9783030355746 ; , s. 183-198
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This chapter focuses on the final stage of the history of the Soviet Union, from 1985 to 1991, when the last Communist Party and Soviet state leader Mikhail Gorbachev tried to reform his country by making economic life more effective, widen the scope of political participation, open up history and culture for debate, and introduce a new, peaceful thinking in international affairs. Gorbachev wanted to save the Soviet system but ended up destroying it. His initially successful strategy of taking a middle-of-the road position to gain support worked well during the first years of reform, but the mid-position became successively narrower until it finally dissolved. Gorbachev’s increasingly desperate attempts to negotiate a new and revised union treaty led in 1991 to the failed August coup which, in turn, dealt the final death blow to the Soviet Union. By way of conclusion, political mistakes are often difficult to distinguish from failures caused by structural problems. As is illustrated by the case of Gorbachev and the Soviet Union, this is particularly salient in societies in which statist power and cultural patterns have traditionally played decisive roles in historical developments.

  • Nationalism and greatness : Russia under the Putin presidencies
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Research Handbook on Nationalism. - Cheltenham UK : Edward Elgar Publishing. - 9781789903430 - 9781789903447 ; , s. 371-381
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this chapter contemporary Russian nationalism is treated as sentiments of national identity diffused throughout Russian society and demonstrated in policies led by the incumbent president, Vladimir Putin. The chapter deals with the shapes nationalism has taken under Putin’s authoritarian leadership and discusses what explains his apparent popularity at home. To provide context for the analysis, the historical background is briefly accounted for. What sentiments have been used to pave the way for Putin’s ascent to power and what were the means used to bring him to this position?  The central argument is that Vladimir Putin’s popular appeal lies in the fact that he has managed to get across that he is uniquely suited to safeguard Russia’s status as a great power –  a core value of Russian national identity –, to preserve order and stability at home, and hold Russia’s own against an outside world often depicted as hostile.

  • The coexistence of hard and soft security threats : Analyzing Swedish national debates
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Triên vong câu trúc o châu Á - Thái Bình Duong dên nam 2025 [The prospect of Asia Pacific structure to 2025 and the response of Vietnam]. - Hanoi : University of Social Sciences and Humanities. - 9786047753796
  • Konferensbidrag (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Using enemy images and securitization as theoretical points of departure the paper discusses and analyzes the landscape of Swedish security threats as made up of traditional, militarily defined threat perceptions and the looming specter of an invasive migrant Other. The paper uses a two-fold analytical focus. Firstly, the last decade or so has seen a notable return of hard security thinking to the Swedish political debate, particularly in relation to a resurgent Russia. To illustrate this, the paper analyzes political discussions surrounding the establishment of the Gotland Regiment, situated on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. The regiment became operational by January 1, 2018, following a political near-consensus that the Swedish preparedness for military defense against Russia needed to be strengthened, not least in the wake of the annexation of Crimea in 2014. The old regiment on Gotland was dismantled in 2004, and the decision about its reestablishment had significant symbolic value. Secondly, the old-school hard security threat perceptions coexist with less traditional threat perceptions, notably those connected to migration, particularly so in the wake of the so-called migration crisis of 2015 when Sweden in short time received an all-time high number of asylum-seekers and refugees. The Sweden Democrats, nowadays the third largest political party in the Swedish Parliament, has managed to capitalize on widespread perceptions that migrants pose threats to the physical security, economic well-being and moral and cultural values of the Swedish majority population, and has, through its success at the polls reshaped the Swedish political landscape.

  • Perspective on the Eastern Enlargement : Triumph of the EU or Seed of Its Destruction?
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Trust in the European Union in Challenging Times. - : Palgrave Macmillan. - 9783319738567 - 9783319738574 ; , s. 41-64
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Efter en kortfattad bakgrundsdiskussion om östutvidgningens dilemman behandlas frågan om en gemensam identitet för EU och vari denna kan tänkas bestå. Argumentet är att förekomsten av en gemensam identitet byggd på gemensamma värden är nödvändig för tilliten inom unionen, liksom för dess inflytande och anseende i världen. Därefter diskuteras de utmaningar som nu riktas mot EU:s gemensamma värdegrund: från de illiberala demokratierna Ungern och Polen, från auktoritära stater utanför EU som Ryssland och Turkiet samt från populistiska strömningar över hela EU-området. Kapitlet avslutas med en summering och några handlingsrekommendationer för hur en gemensam värdegrund, identitet och tillit kan värnas inom unionen.

  • Mars 2018 – och sedan? : Om successionsfrågan i Putins Ryssland
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Nordisk Østforum. - : Cappelen Damm Akademisk. - 0801-7220 .- 1891-1773. ; 32, s. 123-134
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • As president of Russia and a prominent political leader, Vladimir Putin has consistently endeavored to legitimize his rule by appealing to central political myths and taken-for-granted truths in Russian society. In rhetoric and official communication, he emerges as the guarantor of domestic order and stability, the protector of traditional values, and a staunch advocate of Russia’s status and position as a great power in a world often depicted as hostile. What is being communicated here, and apparently finds resonance among broad segments of public opinion, is that on all these parameters Putin is uniquely qualified to lead Russia. Four times in the course of 18 years, Putin has been elected president in the first round of elections, and throughout this period he has received high rankings in regular monthly opinion polls. However, his legitimation strategies have been so firmly linked to the persona of Putin that we may speak of an emerging dilemma with his fourth presidency. Who could fill his shoes as his successor? The article analyzes this dilemma, taking its point of departure in Weber’s seminal theorizing on types of legitimate authority and the routinization of charisma. It discusses the evident dearth of credible successor candidates, and concludes by discussing possible actions for dealing with or postponing the issue of succession.

  • The return of ideology : the search for regime identities in postcommunist Russia and China
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Nationalities Papers. - : Taylor and Francis. - 0090-5992 .- 1465-3923. ; 46:4, s. 727-729
  • Recension (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • In her new book The Return of Ideology Cheng Chen argues that as a nation makes the transition from Communism to democracy or something else, its regime must construct a new political ideology that can guide policy and provide a sense of mission and national togetherness. This is needed for engendering legitimacy among the populace as well as the support of domestic political and economic elites, and is a precondition for the regime’s long-term viability. In the book, Cheng Chen compares the Russian Federation after 1991 and post-Deng China during roughly the same period, and investigates the degree of success of the ideology-building projects in the two great powers.
