Abstract [en]

There has been no decisive shifting of the security/liberty border in Sweden. New offenses of financing of terrorism and new inchoate offenses (such as preparation for acts of terrorism) have been introduced. Increased powers have been given as regards police investigative methods and strategic surveillance. However, the changes that have been made reflect trends apparent long before 9/11. The increased powers have been largely matched by improved safeguards. The Swedish tradition of open, well-investigated, and prepared legislation has contributed toward a more rational public debate on the need for more powers, as well as heightened awareness of the risk for mistaken use and overuse of these powers, something that would contribute toward the very problem – alienation – they were designed to guard against.
