The discourse of ?nationalstatslogiken? is expressed by statements made by Swedish politicians. The discourse is characterized by a skepticism against federalism and an emphasis on Swedish interest. This contributes to a distance between the Swedish citizen and the EU and the difficulties to achive a process of europeanisation in Sweden. (Less)
