Implementing Sustainable Development

Katarina Eckerberg

Oxford University Press

Assesses efforts of the Swedish government to come to terms with sustainable development. It documents strong governmental engagement with sustainable development despite the significant recession that swept the country in the early 1990s and prompted a considerable rethink of the traditional institutions of the Swedish welfare state. It shows how the social democratic government attempted to integrate the idea of environmental sustainability with the traditional social democratic vision of the Folkhemmet (People's Home).

Keywords:   engagement, environmental policy, governance, implementation, recession, sustainable development, Sweden, welfare state
