Human Rights in Contemporary European Law

Edited by: Joakim Nergelius, Eleonor Kristoffersson

This is the sixth volume in the Swedish Studies in European Law series. 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 * the horizontal effect or so-called Drittwirkung of human rights * the increased role of judicial and constitutional review in Swedish courts. The book is a fascinating and timely read for those with an interest in European and human rights law. (Series: Swedish Studies in European Law - Vol. 6)
