Abstract [en]

The paper gives a brief account of the commercialisation of water supply and sanitation provision (the VA-service) in Sweden, and thereafter a detailed analysis of the recent management changes inside the Stockholm Water Company after the general election in September 2006. The paper is based on company protocols, published articles from various sources and the author's informal talks with some of the concerned actors. In the discussion it is argued that the focus on "core business" and the dismantling of the Stockholm Water Company is ideological driven.
