ZusammenfassungThis paper compares the respective contributions of the Swedish sustainable development
strategy (SDS) and the country’s National Environmental Quality Objectives (NEQOs) in
establishing what Steurer and Martinuzzi (2005) refer to as “strategic public management”,
an ideal model of what an effective governance framework for promoting sustainable
development might look like. Key elements of strategic public management that are
considered are the facilitation of policy learning, horizontal and vertical policy integration
and the meaningful engagement of relevant non-governmental stakeholders. The paper
identifies the central achievements and challenges of the SDS and the NEQOs in establishing
these central elements of strategic public management in practice. In this context, it also
addresses how these two governance instruments have faired in tackling some of the past
shortcomings of sustainable development strategies in delivering an effective framework for
strategic public management, resulting in the “administered strategies” described in Steurer
(2008).
It argues that the NEQOs’ relative success in influencing policy making processes in Sweden
is linked to its strong political and institutional foundation as compared to the comparatively
weak political mandate and low level of institutionalization of the SDS. Among other things,
it relates this to the different political processes leading to the establishment of the two
instruments. Despite the achievements of the NEQOs, however, the paper also identifies
important challenges for leveraging the NEQOs' strong monitoring system for shaping
concrete policy making processes and engaging stakeholders. Based on these insights, the
paper concludes with a discussion on the future potential of the NEQOs and the SDS as
frameworks for strategic public management in Sweden and draws more general lessons for
the establishment of more effective governance frameworks for sustainable development.
