Law

Research in the subject of Law covers two main areas, Public Law and Business Law.

Public Law is the collective name for the legislation that regulates the relationship between the state and the individual. We conduct research that primarily examines the rights and obligations of individuals and businesses in relation to the state.

Business Law is a profiled legal area that focuses on issues of entrepreneurship. Our research covers a range of manifold and complex legal issues that need managing in many areas of business, not least within decision-making in business.

Both areas of research emphasise the ongoing process of Europeanisation in Sweden. Studies in European law, particularly EU law, are a strong and necessary element in both these areas of research.

Geographically, the majority of projects are focused on Eastern and Central Europe, Sweden and other EU member states.

Public Law

Public Law is the collective name for the legislation that regulates the relationship between the state and the individual. We conduct research that primarily examines issues relating to the rights and obligations of individuals and businesses in relation to the state.

The relationship between the state and the individual is examined from different perspectives and in different situations. We are interested in general legislative questions regarding rights’ protection and the principle of public access to official records, as well as specific legal guarantees and instruments which citizens can use to influence decision-making processes in environmental law, social law and other special areas of legislation.

A considerable amount of our research has a comparative approach and/or regards and analyses the changes taking place in public law, not least due to the process of Europeanisation.

Business Law

Business Law is a profiled legal area that focuses on issues of entrepreneurship. Our research covers a range of manifold and complex legal issues that need managing in many areas of business, not least within decision-making in business.

Studies in European law are vital in this context, not least because business and entrepreneurship is a core area for EU cooperation. Because issues of entrepreneurship and the Europeanisation process are covered in multiple scholarly areas, such as in Business Studies, research in Business Law is also conducted as part of multidisciplinary research projects. This is demonstrated by, among others, the research project called In the Services of the SMEs? The Patent Systems and the SMEs in the Baltic Sea Region, which received funding from the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies in the autumn of 2016.
