Towards the Information Society

The Case of Sweden

Sweden has had an explicit information technology (IT) policy for about 40 years. The development of Swedish IT policy has been closely connected to the search for internal efficiency in the public sector, as well as the promotion of innovation and economic development. Responsibility for the implementation of IT policy is currently divided among several actors, including a nationally appointed strategy group.
