Abstract
Are the Swedish government’s shareholding interests, which are not compatible with other shareholders’ profit-gaining interests, less prioritized than the profit-gaining interests of other shareholders?
The aim of this thesis is to examine the Swedish Governments shareholding-interests with comparisons to other shareholders ownership-interests to examine if shareholding-interests vary and, if they vary, whether or not they can co-exist within publically listed companies without causing conflicts of interests. And if a conflict of interest is caused than what will that conflict of interest lead to.

Are the Swedish government’s shareholding interests, which are not compatible with other shareholders’ profit-gaining interests, less prioritized than the profit-gaining interests of other shareholders?
The aim of this thesis is to examine the Swedish Governments shareholding-interests with comparisons to other shareholders ownership-interests to examine if shareholding-interests vary and, if they vary, whether or not they can co-exist within publically listed companies without causing conflicts of interests. And if a conflict of interest is caused than what will that conflict of interest lead to. This aim is met by a hypothetical-deductive method in which the hypothesis is mainly that shareholding interests, which are profit-aimed, should be more prioritized than interest which are aimed more towards maintaining social value. The hypothesis rests on a theoretical foundation which is based on three elements. 1. Conflicts of interests are a fact. 2. Governmental shareholding-interests are more aimed towards social values. 3. These governmental shareholding-interests can be treated as Corporate Social Responsibility. TeliaSonera AB is the company upon which this analysis is done. The results from the analysis later show that TeliaSonera AB takes a remarkable Corporate Social Responsibility which later falsifies the hypotheses. (Less)
