The third emancipation of text in human history is the emancipation of authorship. Problems of legacy media are usually explained by the development of multimedia and internet technologies. But the real disaster for old mass-media is the emancipated authorship of amateur “occasional” journalists. Fulbright-Kennan Institute Research Scholar and consultant Andrey Miroshnichenko asks, what will be the result of the competition between the professionalism of staff journalists and the cognitive surplus of guerrilla journalists? How will business models and design of content develop in Russian and American media?

Why did Sweden choose, in the late 1960s, to abandon its long-standing nuclear weapons plans? Today, the end of the Cold War and the declassification of large parts of the relevant documentary record, especially concerning the technical preparations for nuclear weapons production, have created the prerequisites for a more penetrating analysis of this important historical issue. The purpose of this presentation is to summarize the research on Sweden’s plans to acquire nuclear weapons based on primary sources. This overarching analysis is then tested against International Relations theories which have sought to explain factors of proliferation and non-proliferation.
