28 August - Is the Swedish model sustainable?
The Swedish model of Government administration, often seen as an inspiration internationally, has been challenged in an EU context. One question is whether the Government can be responsible for independent authorities acting in relation to the EU. Another concerns the number of Swedish laws emanating from the EU and the status of the Parliament. Still other questions deal with the control of the exercise of power and how it should be designed.
In the SIEPS anthology The legacy of Oxenstierna – reflections on Swedish Government administration and the EU, five researchers describes how EU law influences the Swedish societal organisation in general and the model of administration in particular. At the seminar, the various chapters in the publication will be presented and debated.
