Access to Justice in Sweden from a Comparative Perspective
Stockholm University, Faculty of Law, Department of Law.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-0777-7528
2019 (English)In: Anti-Discrimination Law in Civil Law Jurisdictions / [ed] Barbara Havelková, Mathias Möschel, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2019, p. 118-135Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter explores reasons for why discrimination law is not successful in Sweden, despite Sweden having legislatied all the requirements of EU law. The chapter first focuses briefly on teh Anglo-American historical development of the concept of access to justice and then examines how access to justice has been addressed in Sweden. Though the differences of approach are often explained as simply that of common and civil law, this chapter demonstrate sthat they are instead anchored in the interplay between civil society, government agencies, courts and lawmakers, as well as a concept of law (regardless of whether judge-made or statutory) as individually enforceable or simply policy declarations.
