Sweden's national pension system as a political technology

Abstract [en]

This chapter examines Sweden’s national pension system, focusing on how the design of the new pension scheme functioned as a political technology to simultaneously depoliticise and ‘responsibilise’ the subjects of the reform. My analysis sheds light on how tools of new governance may be embedded in the construction of a public policy. The design of Sweden’s new pension system recasts what was previously a political issue into a neutral, purely technical one to be dealt with by experts, not by elected politicians. i also explore how the construction of the policy effectively relocated responsibility for future pension levels from the state to the individual citizen.
