Abstract [en]

During the 1990s the Swedish Government put forward the country's first two bills concerning ICT. The main aim is that "Sweden will be the first country to become an information society for all". This paper analyses the Government's policy style, ie the government's approach to ICT. The conclusion is that it is both reactive and proactive. It is reactive in the sense that the vision and many of the goals are the same in other European states. Sweden is too small a country to be leading in all developments. The proactive approach is about the Government's efforts to make use of the advantages Sweden has: a high level of education, a society driven by technological progress, technological knowledge, etc. All political parties in Parliament are favourable. ICT is seen as the solution to many problems: growth, unemployment gender inequality, regional development etc. In this regard one may conclude that ICT has created a national policy window for the elite.
