The government´s influence over public outhorities. : What influence has the minister of labor over the public employment service´s letters of regulation? (English)
Abstract [en]

The study investigates how the state council of government affects the public services’ letters of regulation that its members sign. A lot speaks against such an impact exists because Sweden has a tradition of independent authorities, when ministerial rule is prohibited by the Constitution. The state council does not make decisions about its particular departments without joint decisions by the government, the position of the council itself is therefore weak. The material is based upon the state Employment Agency’s letters of regulation in concern to five policy areas, investigated from 2006 to 2014. What is being studied is if there is a political influence over the content of the Employment Agency’s letter of regulation, and how it is provided. There are two research questions: 1) How the Swedish Employment Agency’s letters of regulation are affected when a new cabinet is inaugurated? 2) Does the government affect the level of details control by the letters of regulation? Great importance has been given to finding an authority where the possibilities for political influence are as large as possible. It is therefore likely that impact of other government councils on the regulatory letters they sign is lower than the one investigated here. The method used is qualitative text analysis. The results show that Employment Agency’s letters of regulation become increasingly detailed over time. At the same time, requirements for reporting are increased. The changes partially depend on the government council, which is holding the office. A particular council may thus affect the regulatory letters, but the impact is relatively weak in comparison to other factors.
