ABSTRACT
This article examines reforms and changes in different areas of the Swedish welfare state and discusses the importance of external and domestic factors for recent developments. Three of the areas have been subject to 'big' reforms; pensions, social services and taxation. One area has been dominated by piecemeal changes and non-decisions; social insurance. Among the examined 'big' reforms, there is no case that appears to have been primarily driven by external factors. However, policies have been indirectly affected by not least globally diffused ideas and there has also been a kind of domestic moulding of these ideas.
