Abstract
The study seeks knowledge about the Swedish euro-scepticism and about the work of the Swedish euro-sceptical Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). How do they work in an environment where the norm is to have a positive attitude towards a future federal state of Europe? How do they regard their own situation and possibilities to make a change?

The study includes a debate on today's Swedish euro-scepticism as background. My finding about the MEPs? work is that their way of acting in the European Parliament does not distinguish from other MEPs? in large. The euro-sceptical MEPs seem to see small opportunities to change the EU essentially, but I also show that they do not use all possible means. They have adopted themselves to the Parliament's organisation standard and they seem to do their daily work like anyone else, with the only visible difference that they work more. I show that though these MEPs are in a difficult situation, they do not have a Swedish euro-sceptical co-operation.

This picture leads me to the conclusion that euro-sceptical MEPs do not make a big difference in the European Parliament. (Less)
