(p.165) 4 The Reception Process in Sweden and Norway
A Europe of Rights

Ola Wiklund

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the reception of the ECHR in Sweden and Norway. It shows that the true Europeanization of the legal systems of the two countries was initiated in the mid-90's. This legal transformation coincided with changes of an economic nature brought about by the process of globalization. From a legal point of view, globalization was brought about by the integration of two important regimes of law into the domestic system: the ECHR and the law of the European Union (EU).
