A New Constitution for Sweden: Report from the Democratic Audit of Sweden 2004

Olof Petersson

Can democratic governance and public policy in a mature democracy like Sweden´s be improved through constitutional reform? Can widely perceived problems in the political life of such a country, including growing popular mistrust of the political establishment, be remedied by changing the rules of the political game?

These are some of the questions addressed in the SNS 2004 Democratic Audit of Sweden.
