Abstract [en]

Along with research and teaching, the “third duty” of researchers at Swedish universities is the dissemination of knowledge to the public. This obligation is part of the Professors’ Code of Honor—approved by the Association of Swedish Professors in 1993 - which also emphasizes the importance of objectivity in the public debate. Frey (2000) argues that crude views on public policy are advantaged to the extent that sophisticated scholars do nothing, and that the participation of researchers should improve the public debate. Sweden has had a long-standing tradition of leading economists being active in public discourse, including Knut Wicksell, Gustav Cassel, Eli Heckscher, Gunnar Myrdal, and Bertil Ohlin (Carlson and Jonung 1996).
