The EU in brief

Sweden has been a member of the European Union (the EU) since 1995. The EU member states cooperate in different areas and many of these affect our everyday lives. Here you will find a brief description of what the EU does, how the EU makes decisions, how Sweden is affected and Sweden's role in the EU. It also deals with how you can influence the EU.

Much of the EU's work is about making it easier for member states to trade with each other. One objective of the EU is to make it easy to travel, move to another member state or study in another member state. For example, citizens of the EU can now work in another member state without any special work or residence permit. The euro is the currency in more than half of the EU's member states.
