EU after the crisis - a perspective on democracy and influence in a changing EU (2014:1op)
As a consequence of the economic crisis, a series of measures have been undertaken in order to strengthen the economic-political coordination in the EU. This development raises several questions in relation to the Swedish EU membership. If what we now witness is a move towards a multi-speed union, where some countries are cooperating closer than others, what are the implications for Sweden´s room for influence and how will the scope for national self-determination be affected?
In June 2013, SIEPS organised the conference “A changing EU – what implications for Sweden?”, where researchers, opinion-makers and politicians raised broad issues about democracy and influence in a changing EU. In this publication you will find – apart from a newly written introduction – three contributions presented at the conference.
The publication is part of SIEPS´ research project The constitutional development of the European Union.
