Essay in political science, C-level by Mikael Granath

Autumn semester 2012, Tutor: Freddy Kjellström

- Ideological convergence in Swedish party politics?

- An analysis of ideologies of the Swedish Social Democratic party and the Swedish Moderate

party and their healthcare and health service policies between the years of 2002 and 2010.

The main purpose of this study is to examine the truthfulness in the common perception that

the Swedish moderate party and the Swedish social democratic party are increasingly sharing

the same political views - particularly between the years of 2002 and 2010. The main research

question is:

Did the Swedish Moderate party and the Swedish Social Democratic party

ideologically position themselves closer in the year of 2002 than they did in 2010

within the health care policy area?

The research design chosen for this study can be labelled as a comparative case study where

the two political parties party programs and election manifestos that were current in the year

of 2002 and 2010 are studied. This is done to give a better view of ideological change. An

analysis of ideology is used as method to be able to identify an ideological change.

The conclusion of this study that there has indeed existed an ideological convergence within

the time frame that was studied. The ideological convergence can not be seen within all the

parameters that was studied. And while it has not been great, it can still be measured. The

most striking discovery is rather the liberalisation of the healthcare and health service policies

that has taken place between the year of 2002 and 2010.
