A strong and cohesive EU

The EU is Sweden’s most important political arena

Sweden is pushing for a stronger EU and stands up for the common values that form the foundation of EU cooperation: freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights.

In 2018 the Government will give particular priority to questions concerning a social Europe for jobs and inclusive growth; an ambitious climate, energy and environment policy; a common asylum system and expanded cooperation on migration; and a secure EU in a secure world.
