Abstract [en]

Frontrunner states have been shown highly important for the development and diffusion of progressive environmental policies. History shows, however, that the frontrunner status is dynamic and that previous leader countries have become laggards. Here I assess recent policy changes in Sweden – a state widely recognised as an environmental frontrunner – arguing that environmental policy practice within areas prioritised by the Government (biodiversity, sustainable energy, the marine environment, and climate change) have experienced high-profile, and from a green perspective highly controversial policy changes. This policy development raises critical concerns for the future role of Sweden as an environmental frontrunner.
