"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. The almedalen week is Sweden's and scandinavia's largest democratic meeting place, unique in its kind. Many are the countries which jealously glances toward us. That sweden's prime minister Stefan Löfven chooses to abandon the Almedalen week is boring, but something we respect. "
"in Contrast, is the way he makes it deeply regretted. He chooses to actively take a stand against the week and believe that it has been for much of the lobbyists and industry, and for a bit of movement and individual citizens."
"the Prime minister's choice to refrain Almedalen week puts the back light on the criticism, which in recent years have been directed against the week. That it would become too commercial at the expense of the policy. "
"We share the image of the industry is seen more and more, but it is the policies themselves that must take responsibility for their visibility. It is the eight parliamentary parties ultimately responsible for the week, and by their arrangement and their participation allows the policy to take place."
"In the troubled times in which we find ourselves now feels the democratic meeting places more important than ever. When the world wobbles and populism spreads, the necessary democratic discourse in various forms. It is our firm belief that the Almedalen week continued needed, and fills an important function. The open Almedalsandan allows different political views can fit side-by-side. Politicians, businesses, interest groups and visitors gather in a small space. Its uniqueness lies in the closeness and intimacy. "
"most of The time during the Almedalen week is happening in public space and is open to anyone. It differs from the other summits that take place behind the barriers, the security arrangements and massive surveillance. 25% of the events in 2018 organised by non-profit organisations and 12 per cent of the state authorities. Representatives from the eight parliamentary parties participated in 2396 sessions during the week. "
"Almedalsveckan has been copied successfully in, inter alia, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and in our baltic neighbours, and get more and more foreign visitors. Even south Korea, Nepal, Somalia, and Ukraine is in the starting blocks. "
"the List grows every year, countries look at Sweden as a pioneer and actively chosen to invest and invest to create their own democratic arenas. The almedalen week is something unique, and something that all swedes, even the Swedish prime minister should be proud of."
