Abstract
This Bachelor Thesis in political science aims to analyse the influence of the traditional Swedish model of collective bargaining versus EU law over the political debate in Sweden. The analysis focuses upon the official political discussion in the Swedish Parliament (the Riksdag) and the official statements from the Committee on the Labour Market (Arbetsmarknadsutskottet) from 2004/05 and 2010/11 due to the Laval-case.
By conducting a discourse analysis mainly based on Norman Fairclough’s Critical Discourse Analysis and Steve Lukes three dimensions of power combined with Michel Foucault’s fourth dimension I will analyse the influence of the two different legal principles and the possible change in the relation.

This Bachelor Thesis in political science aims to analyse the influence of the traditional Swedish model of collective bargaining versus EU law over the political debate in Sweden. The analysis focuses upon the official political discussion in the Swedish Parliament (the Riksdag) and the official statements from the Committee on the Labour Market (Arbetsmarknadsutskottet) from 2004/05 and 2010/11 due to the Laval-case.
By conducting a discourse analysis mainly based on Norman Fairclough’s Critical Discourse Analysis and Steve Lukes three dimensions of power combined with Michel Foucault’s fourth dimension I will analyse the influence of the two different legal principles and the possible change in the relation. I use the three step-model of Fairclough to analyse the texts while the theories of power is used as a measure to explain the outcome from a discursive perspective.
The analysis shows that the development towards further integration of EU law in the Swedish labour law model appears mainly in the statement of the Committee during 2004/05 while it during 2010/11 is evident in both the Parliament and Committee. Both the Parliament and Committee emphasize the traditional model of collective bargaining still own great influence in the Swedish politics and its importance. The result suggests a slight on-going change in the meaning of the Swedish model of labour law to in a higher degree include EU law in the deliberations without for that part exclude the model of collective bargaining to a greater extent.
