This chapter explores the impact of pension reform in Sweden. It begins with a description of the background of the reform and its elements, including the funded-component and its organisation. The different forms of integration with international financial markets generated by the changes in the funding of the public system, and the public-private interplay in pension provision are discussed. The future of nation-based welfare state from a Swedish perspective is then presented.
