    This paper analyzes how Sweden responded to the microelectronic revolution from the late 1970's to the middle of the 1980's. In what ways did Sweden confront this "strategic threat"? Sweden is not, however, conceived as a unitary actor. It is argued that the cabinet's political responses were a result of a complex domestic political process in which both state and societal actors participated. This domestic political process was closely linked to changes in international environment, especially changes within the European integration process. The first part of the paper presents a framework of analysis concerning the concept of state strategy. The second section analyzes the domestic process towards a nationally oriented strategy. The third and last part, which dominates the paper, analyzes the Swedish decision to join EUREKA and the initial domestic decision-making process.
