Abstract [en]

This paper is concerned with exploring what Sweden’s role is in the European Union Environmental Policy. Adopting an epistemological approach, the author analyses the recent history of the EU environmental policy, as well as the Swedish domestic environmental policy.

The paper lays out a framework in which the most important Swedish environmental objectives are depicted in order to apply them to the EU environmental policy. A close examination of the various Swedish environmental documents and government proposals led to the understanding that the two most important EU environmental areas for Sweden are the EU chemical and Climate policy.

Consequently, the author explores how Sweden is trying to influence the EU within these two areas, and what Sweden actually does with the aim of influencing the EU. The basis of the theoretical framework for the research is Multi-Level Governance. Consequently, the research is executed through an examination of how fundamental Swedish policy makers perceive its possibility to influence the EU decision-making process.
