Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Like its predecessor 2018, the political year of 2019 in Swedish politics was historic in several ways. The uniquely protracted government formation process was concluded in January. The Social Democrats/Socialdemokraterna (S)–Green Party/Miljöpartiet de gröna (MP) minority coalition continued in office, but only due to an agreement with the Centre Party/Centerpartiet (C) and Liberals/Liberalerna (L) which involved difficult concessions for the governing parties. This government constellation remained in office throughout the year, but its position was vulnerable with recurring threats of no‐confidence votes. The economy showed signs of a slowdown although fiscal stability was maintained.
