When Do Rights Matter? A Case Study of the Right to Equal Treatment in Sweden

Banakar, Reza LU (2004) In Human rights brought home p.165-184
Abstract
The discussions in this chapter should be viewed as a limited contribution to the debate on how to introduce the right to equal treatment through legislation. In the coming pages, I shall use a case study to demonstrate the differences between rights which emerge organically from below and work bottom up and rights which are introduce through political pressure from above and work top down. This study is limited in its legal and jurisdictional scope in that it addresses only the emergence and enforcement of rights to equal treatment in regard to Swedish anti-discrimination laws.
