The Swedish Administrative Model and the EU

Timeframe: Completed
Project manager: Josefin Almer Wulff

In this project the negotiations and implementation of EU legislation will be analyzed from a Swedish perspective. Focus will be on legislation relating to the internal market.

The main purpose of this project is to study how the European Union influences the Swedish model of public administration. Of particular interest is the EU decision-making process: the proactive phase (when the EU's policy is designed), as well as the reactive phase (implementation of policy). Of particular importance is the proposal by the Working Committee on Constitutional Reform (‘Grundlagsutredningen’) and, to some extent, proposals from the Commission on the Public Administration (‘Förvaltningsutredningen’) which will be subject to further processing and discussion in 2009-2010
