Abstract
The purpose in this thesis is to explore the underlying conceptions concerning

europeanization and public administration that Statskontoret is expressing in its

publications. Statskontoret is an agency in the service of the Swedish State which

methodological choice in this thesis is to perform an idea analysis containing two

ideal types which correspond with two polar theories, transnationalism and

nation-state logic, concerning how a state will react on increasing european-

nation-state logic, concerning how a state will react on increasing european-

ization. Initially, the theoretical framework is presented, and is followed by a

presentation of the content in the relevant publications of Statskontoret. The ideal

types and the publications are examined from six different dimensions with the

ambition to explore the underlying conception in the publications. These norms

and ideas are compared with the theoretical framework to explore which one of

the ideal types that is the most similar with Statskontoret's conception of

European integration.

The result is that Statskontoret's basic ideas of the concept of europeanization

correspond the most with nation-state logic, which undoubtedly implies

consequences for the investigations and surveys that the agency provides for the

Government and the Ministries. (Less)
