Governments in Western Europe, Government in Sweden: The Executive at Work focuses on the affairs of the Swedish government. The book first offers information on the structure and constitutional reforms instituted in the government of Sweden. This information includes the function of the monarchy, council of state, and departments and boards in running the affairs of the government. The text also expounds on the volume of citizens involved in state service, and also the legislative process of the country. The selection also examines the internal and judicial controls on the executive branch of the government. The liability of civil servants for their actions; creation of specialized agencies for internal finance and efficiency control; and administrative appeals are elaborated. Discussions also focus on the external controls of the executive branch. Consideration includes the publicity of official documents; inspection of the minutes of the council; parliamentary auditors and ombudsmen; and interpellations and questions. The text is a vital reference for readers interested in the governments of Western Europe, particularly the government of Sweden.
