Conference: EU in the Swedish election

As Sweden is heading for elections this autumn, an increasingly intensive debate is taking place on the EU’s major future issues.

Those who represent Sweden in Brussels this autumn will have to deal with migration issues, the EU’s role in the world, Brexit and closer cooperation within the Eurozone. What role have the European issues played in Swedish elections? What are the major reform processes today? And what EU issues should get more attention in Sweden?

Welcome to a seminar where experts and European politicians discuss Europe in Sweden and Sweden in Europe.
