Chapter Summary

Sweden has enjoyed a good reputation through its past policies of neutrality and non-alliance. This chapter elaborates on the status of international human rights law obligations in Sweden; the ratification of international human rights treaties; the approach to the full spectrum of rights, ranging from civil and political to economic, social, and cultural rights and from individual to collective; and national implementation mechanisms of these international obligations. Disregarding the way international human rights law obligations affect the actual application in a country, the protection that a country chooses to subscribe is essential. Human rights consist of a spectrum of rights ranging from civil to cultural, from individual to collective. A reconsidered view on international human rights law in relation to national law, and a sincere implementation at the national level in line with international practice will contribute towards the development of a greater culture of rights.
