This book studies the emergence of the regulatory state in Europe and its impact on democratic governance in Scandinavia.
On the basis of comparative studies on various government structures in Scandinavia and the EU, the author analyses the repercussions
of the change from government to dominant non-parliamentary democratic governance. In addition, readers will be introduced
to the organizational and institutional changes and developments caused by economic and welfare state reforms. A cutting-edge
resource, the book will appeal to students and scholars of political science and political economics, while also offering
an engaging read for civil servants and policymakers.
