Human Rights in Contemporary European Law Hardback
Edited by Joakim Nergelius, Eleonor Kristoffersson
Part of the Swedish Studies in European Law series
This is volume 6 in the series Swedish Studies in European Law.
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.
