The Monthly Policy Review

The Monthly Policy Review is an independent research publication catering to a global audience that wishes to keep abreast of issues that shape the political- and economic climate in Sweden.

The report provides insight into Swedish current affairs and is designed as a resource to understand the complexities and subtleties of the country while keeping on top of the latest policy news. Further, the reports are tailored for internationals, helping them overcome possible cultural- and historical gaps in their knowledge of Sweden.

Published once a month, the review offers analysis of the topics that shape the political- and economic climate in Sweden i.a. national politics, economy, security- and defence, energy, social developments and geo-political issues. Our insightful analytical reports give you the opportunity to understand not just outcomes but also the forces in Swedish policy-making that drive those outcomes.

Diplomats tell us that they base their reports to home-capitals on our analysis, helping them to be efficient at getting the job done and foreign executives say it gives them a better understanding of the country they are operating in.

Each article is carefully researched and cross-checked across a variety of sources, including through personal contacts that we maintain.

Each report feature 3-4 research articles on Swedish current affairs. Below are some examples of topics we have covered over the years:
