The EU in Local Politics
This report examines the impact of the European Union on Swedish municipalities, county councils and regions.
It provides a quantitative estimate of the number of political issues dealt with on local and regional level, which are affected by the EU. It also describes more closely the main areas influenced by the EU.
This has been done through an analysis of meeting agendas of municipal councils, county councils and regional councils and through an assessment of whether the items on the agendas concern subjects that are affected by the EU or not.
