Amelia Andersdotter (born 30 August 1987, Enköping) is a Swedish politician and Member of the European Parliament (MEP), elected on the Piratpartiet list in the 2009 election.
Andersdotter joined the Piratpartiet shortly after its formation in 2006. From June 2007 to March 2010 she was the international coordinator of Ung Pirat, the party’s youth wing. In this capacity she coordinated contacts with other groups in Sweden, and other pirate political movements around the world, as well as the organization’s international policy viewpoints.
In 2009 she was named the second candidate on Piratpartiet’s list for the European Parliament elections in June of that year. While Piratpartiet did not gain enough votes for a second MEP under the treaty of Nice, they did get enough votes to award her a seat under the terms of the new treaty of Lisbon that was to come into effect December that year. Difficulties with the ratification process of the treaty of Lisbon meant that the seat would not be granted until December 2011. She is now the youngest member of the European Parliament.
She is a part of the Parliamentary Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE). She is also a substitute member of the Committee on International Trade (INTA) and the Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT). She also serves as a full member of the parliamentary delegation to the Korean peninsula, and a substitute member of the delegation for the Andean community.
