The Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies, SIEPS, conducts and promotes research and analysis of European policy affairs. The research is conducted under three broad themes: power and democracy; the external dimensions of the European Union; and consequences of EU policies.
SIEPS considers it important to broaden and intensify research into matters that are significant for the future development of the European Union and, towards that end, actively seeks to develop close cooperation with institutes and research centres in Europe and globally.
SIEPS strives to act as a link between the academic world and policy-makers at various levels. By publishing reports and arranging seminars and conferences,
SIEPS aims to further stimulate research on the future of Europe.
