Sweden - Riksdagen


Background
In 2006 the Swedish Parliament adopted new guidelines concerning the committees work with research and future issues. The new guidelines imply that the committees will be more future oriented and, amongst others, are to include technology assessments in their reports.

The Parliamentary evaluation and research unit at the Research Service was enlarged 2007 in order to strengthen the capacities within the area of research and future issues. In the new guidelines the committees’ proposals and requests are to be submitted to the unit, which can assist in conducting analyses of the future and technology assessments.

In most cases an all-party steering group is assigned to provide guidelines for the reports and to ensure that they are carried out in accordance within the Committee’s terms of reference. A group of experts is also assigned in order to scrutinise the content of the reports.
