Summary
This program considers the role of the unaligned nation as defined by the late Dag Hammarskjold.  Sweden, the narrator notes, remained neutral in both World War I and II, and has maintained a unanimously supported policy of non-alliance since 1945.  This policy, however, is based on strong defense, and the country is taking an active part in all forms of non-military international cooperation.  Sweden joined the United Nations in 1946, was the founding members of the Council of Europe, and belongs to the Nordic Council.  The program also traces the history of Sweden from the days of the Viking to War World II.  Among the participates in this program are Bertil Ohlin, professor, leader of the Liberal Party, and member of Parliament since 1938; and Erik Rosengren, colonel in charge of one of Sweden’s two military academies.
