Speaker information

Professor Iain Cameron, University of Uppsala
Professor Thomas Bull, University of Uppsala

Sweden shares with the UK a strong commitment to representative democracy. It also is widely perceived to have an enviable human rights record. The Swedish Parliament has historically acted as the primary guardian of fundamental rights, while the courts have played at best a secondary role in this context. Professors Cameron and Bull will explore how this constitutional arrangement has shaped judicial culture in Sweden, and how the impact of European law is altering the status quo. Co-hosted by UCL Laws and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law.
