There is considerable variation between countries, and in some cases also within countries, in how the Partnership Principle is understood and implemented in management of EU Structural Funds throughout Europe. To facilitate comparison, a pilot project comprising of case studies for six countries has been carried out. These countries are: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The study is prepared for the Evaluation Unit of DGXVI in the European Commission, to serve as background information for the debate on the future development of the Structural Funds. This working paper reports the case study from Sweden. The Tavistock Institute, with Elliot Stern as project leader, is responsible for the final comparative report from this pilot project.
