Swedish Studies in European Law Vol. 6: Human Rights in Contemporary European Law

SSEL Volume 6. Nergelius, Kristoffersson, red. Hart, Bloomsbury Publishing, Oxford

Arising from the work of two well-attended seminars, this new volume concentrates on highly topical issues in European Law - current problems in the enforcement of human rights in Europe and the accession of the EU to the European Convention on Human Rights. Among the topics dealt with - apart from 'the accession issue' - are questions related to the enforcement of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, human rights as general principles of law, specific issues like the 'Double Jeopardy Clause' in relation to Swedish tax law, horizontal effect or so-called 'Drittwirkung' of human rights and the increased role of judicial and constitutional review in Swedish courts. The book should be of value to any reader with an interest in such matters.
