Miljöpolitik eller personlig frihet?: fallstudie av Växjö Kommun

Abstract [en]

This thesis is a case-study of an ongoing court case between the Swedish Competition Agency and Växjö Municipality about a set-up requirement to the long-distance heating system for newly built private houses on municipality owned land. This requirement was set up as part of the municipality’s long-term environmental goals; however the Competition Agency claims that the demand is damaging the free market in the municipality. The purpose of this thesis is to determine which normative assumptions the decision makers have based their actions and re-action on, and whether or not these assumptions are valid, thru theoretical ideal types. This is determined via method of textual analysis. Political theory regarding Liberalism, Utilitarianism, Ecology, Freedom and Exorcise of Power are all part of the theoretical framework.  After concluded study it is possible to say that the two plenipotentiary powers operate under different ideological assumptions and an understanding between them will be a difficult task, but none the less an important one for the possibility of future long-term environmental policies, both in the municipality of Växjö and the county of Sweden as a whole.
