on the assumption that Swedish politics is shaped in relation to the
multilevel governance system within the EU, our focus in this assignment
is on the interaction between Swedish national policy-making and the
EU. Swedish policy-making refers to the following eleven ‘policy areas’:
economic, agricultural, environmental, social, education, gender
equality, asylum and migration, crime prevention, foreign and security,
neighborhood and development and aid. Each policy area has been
scrutinized over time, from the moment of entry into the EU of 1995
Your task is to discuss
what the membership of the EU meant for Swedish politics since Sweden
became a member in 1995? Has Swedish policy-making changed in terms of:
a) organization (form) and b) content (substance) as a result of
European integration and the EU membership. Discuss and present in
writing all 11 policy-areas / about 300 words/policy-area.
