Abstract [en]

This essay studies what affects individual’s political participation in Sweden. Specifically, it

examines what affects resources, motivation and networks has on individual’s political

participation and if these effects have a greater or lesser impact during election year compared

to non- election year. The study applies the civic voluntarism model as theory. According to

the theory, individuals who are more motivated and have a good access to resources and

networks participate more in politics. This study relies on a quantitative method completed

with a logistic regressions analysis and the empirical data used was obtained from SOMinstitute,

Gothenburg University. Our research concluded that individuals with more access to

resources, networks and high political motivation are more likely to participate in the politics

of Sweden. Furthermore, the study revealed that effects of motivation and network has a

stronger impact on individual’s political participation in Sweden under election year compared

to non-election year.
