Sammanfattning

All across the globe there is an increasing focus on policy design to reduce climate change. In Sweden billions of Swedish kroner (SEK) are spent on subsidies to private firms with the purpose of contributing to a greener economy. However, rigorous econometrical evaluations of such programmes are limited. This paper aims to fill that gap by analysing the effects of 13 subsidy schemes set up to stimulate green growth. Between 2001 and 2009, 129 firms participated in one or several of these schemes. The total amount of money distributed amounted to over 1,3 billion SEK. Since the programmes aim to increase sustainable growth, effects on employment are in focus. By conducting a propensity score matching (PSM) followed by a set of different econometrical models, it is concluded that the subsidy schemes have insignificant or very small effects on employment.

Sammanfattning

Sammanfattning:
I rapporten undersöks om de svenska regelverken för hantering av samhällsfarliga arbetsmarknadskonflikter behöver uppdateras eller reformeras. Är de ändamålsenliga i en värld där viktiga samhällsfunktioner upprätthålls av ett stort antal ömsesidigt beroende aktörer i komplexa system där varje enskild nod blir kritisk för systemets funktionalitet, och där samhällsviktig verksamhet lika gärna är privat som offentlig? En jämförelse görs med motsvarande regleringsmetoderna och deras förändring i Storbritannien, Tyskland och Danmark.

Sammanfattning

This report deals with the significance of the principle of proportionality in the strike law of Germany and the EU. As far as German law is concerned, the legal basis and content of the principle of proportionality will first be outlined, and then the importance of the principle for labour law in general. The main issue, however, is the role played by the principle of proportionality in industrial action law. There the Federal Labour Court has meanwhile raised the principle to the central yardstick for the assessment of industrial action measures. The relevant decisions will be presented, but also the considerable criticism of these will not be concealed. Subsequently, EU law will come to the fore, whereby the legal basis, the content and the scope of application of the principle of proportionality will be dealt first. On that basis, the application of the principle in industrial action law will be examined. In that context, the focus will be in the decisions of the European Court of Justice in the cases Laval and Viking. The following section is then devoted to the comparison of German and European law. The author here demonstrates that there are considerable differences in the application of the principle of proportionality.
