Swedes attitudes towards the EU has stabilised: An analysis of the SOM Institute 2015 survey (2016:9epa)
Författare: 

Swedish attitudes towards the EU are often described as ambiguous and utilitarian. In this Sieps analysis of the SOM Institute survey 2015, the authors elaborate on issues such as Swedish support for EU membership, attitudes towards a hypothetical Euro membership and the estimation of how the EU membership has affected Sweden in a number of areas. The analysis also discusses to which extent Swedes identify with the EU and Europe against the backdrop of national and regional identities.

The publication is in Swedish and is part of SIEPS´ research project Swedish public opinion of the European integration.
