Abstract [en]

This thesis is a comparative study examining the goals and tasks for the Swedish upper secondary school and the influence from the European Union’s strategic work with a common education policy. To determine if there is any Europeanization the question has been raised how the strategic work from the European Union has influenced the Swedish law of education and the curriculum for the upper secondary school. As a theoretical framework, the theory of Europeanization is used to examine if there is any change in before and after the membership. The main conclusions are that there is some degree of a Europeanization of the Swedish upper secondary regarding digital competence and entrepreneurship however not as much in the social and civic competences where democracy has been a central part in Swedish education since the 1950s. The changes in the curriculum are not exclusively by the influence of the European Union. the globalisation and a change towards service society is also a key factor. When it comes to a european dimension in the education, the amount found does not reflect the expectations, compared to the ambitions set down by the European Union. What has been concluded is, even if there is a larger trend in globalisation and societal change, the European Union is a part of this inclination and has therefore influenced the upper secondary school system to a degree.
