Abstract

Sweden can therefore be seen as a favourable case and due to the Most-likely method: if the theories about environmental policy integration cannot be applied to the Swedish political context, it is likely that it has deficiencies in other cases to. The case of Sweden is studied through the transportation politics and two governmental bills, from two different governments, the Socialdemokraterna in 1998, and the Alliance parties in 2008.
There seem to be some environmental policy integration in both bills and coordination mechanism like the Swedish environmental qualitative goals, and the sector responsibility seems to have an importance. The international policy context and the use of environmental knowledge can also be important aspects in explaining the environmental policy integration (Less)
