Representation in the EU Committee of the Regions

In the EU Committee of the Regions, Sweden is represented by twelve politicians from its municipalities, county councils and regions.

The Committee is an advisory body and an important political channel for influencing the decisions taken by the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers. Through the employer organisation CEEP, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions participates in the EU's social dialogue. The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) is another important platform for the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions.
