Abstract [en]

During the past couple of years, Sweden has as many other European countries encountered several challenges being the results of globalization, financial crisis and a migration tide. In this report, some trends and changes in the constitutional setting are commented upon as the constitution, political setting and the welfare state are put to the test by these challenges. The language used in media and by the politicians underlines the perspective of the country facing a crisis. The constitution, however, has not often been referred to and the complex challenges that counties, municipalities and national agencies meet are handled with pragmatism not opening up for the constitutional dimension.
