Abstract [en]

This paper investigates how the Culture Cooperation Model affects regional growth in Sweden. The model was introduced in 2011 and onwards in the Swedish regions. The hypothesis is that the Culture Cooperation Model leads to regional initiatives in the cultural field, and that culture attracts people to the region, as well as increase the populations’ creative and innovative ability. The econometric methodology applied in this paper is a difference-in-differences approach and data is collected from 2007-2017. The result shows a significant effect from the Culture Cooperation Model on per capita tax power among Swedish regions and an effect is also found in larger municipalities. The result does not show any significant effects from the Culture Cooperation Model on gross regional product and net migration among Swedish regions. Furthermore, the result does not show any effect from the Culture Cooperation Model on cultural life in regions.
