Abstract and Keywords

These chapters revolve around questions concerning what kind of polity Sweden became part of in 1995, in what ways Sweden has been transformed due to membership in the EU, and what role a relatively small member state can play in the European political arena. The first chapter analyzes different interpretations of the governance turn in the EU and how these turns relate to Swedish policy-making. The second chapter examines how the EU has transformed the Swedish administrative state by different governance processes. The third chapter studies the Europeanization of Swedish foreign policy and changed role conceptions. The fourth chapter shows that Sweden influenced EU politics during its presidencies but that the scope and conditions of the influence lie outside the control of the presidency.

Keywords: Sweden and the EU, governance, Europeanization, the Swedish administrative state, Swedish foreign policy, Swedish EU presidencies
