Ambassadors of Realpolitik Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War

Ambassadors of Realpolitik Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War

Author: Aryo Makko Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/11/2019

During the Cold War, Sweden actively cultivated a reputation as the conscience of the world, working to build bridges between East and West and embracing a nominal commitment to international solidarity. This groundbreaking study explores the tension between realism and idealism in Swedish diplomacy during a key episode in Cold War history: the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, culminating in the 1975 Helsinki Accords. Through careful analysis of new evidence, it offers a compelling counternarrative of this period, showing that Sweden strategically ignored human rights violations in Eastern Europe and the nonaligned states in its pursuit of national interests.
